This item is a 7" X 9",black and white photo of actor David Niven in a scene from the 1959 CBS Television Show-"The Du Pont Show With June Allyson". The photo has an original,dated typed byline on CBS stationery.After his Goldwyn contract ended in 1949, David Niven marked time with inconsequential movies before joining Dick Powell, Charles Boyer, and Ida Lupino to form Four Star, a television production company. Niven was finally able to choose strong dramatic roles for himself, becoming one of TV's first and most prolific stars, although his public still preferred him as a light comedian. The actor's film career also took an upswing in the '50s with starring performances in the controversial The Moon Is Blue (1953) a harmless concoction which was denied a Production Code seal because the word "virgin" was bandied about and the mammoth Around the World in 80 Days (1956), in which Niven played his most famous role, erudite 19th century globetrotter Phileas Fogg. When Laurence Olivier dropped out of the 1958 film Separate Tables, Niven stepped in to play an elderly, disgraced British military man. Although he was as flippant about the part as usual telling an interviewer, "They gave me very good lines and then cut to Deborah Kerr while I was saying them" he won an Oscar for this performance. Niven continued his career as a high-priced, A-list actor into the '60s, returning to television in the stylish "caper" series The Rogues in 1964. He revisited his hobby of writing in the early '70s; an earlier novel, Round the Ragged Rocks, didn't sell very well, but gave him pleasure while working on it. But two breezy autobiographies did better: The Moon's a Balloon (1972) and Bring on the Empty Horse (1975). Working alone, without help of a ghostwriter (as opposed to many celebrity authors), Niven was able to entertainingly transfer his charm and wit to the printed page (even if he seldom let the facts impede his storytelling).The photo has been autographed on the front by David Niven with a fountain pen in blue....BOTH PHOTO AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION..............
