During his solitary runs, reveries of his life and times before his incarceration lead him to re-evaluate his privileged status as the Governor's (played by Michael Redgrave) prize runner."The photo has been autographed on the front by Tom Courtenay.................BOTH PHOTO AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.
