(1913-1994) American screen actor, an Academy Award winner for his role in Elmer Gentry also acclaimed for his roles in The Birdman of Alcatraz and Atlantic City. A pair of items, the first a vintage I.S.P. 8" x 10" b/w, shows Lancaster in role with cigarette in hand, boldly inscribed and signed to Harry. Light creasing to right edge, light wear to corners, very good. Along with a T.L.S. 1p. 4to., Los Angeles, Sept. 28, 1947, to jazz musician Tony Sacco, in part: "...I've been so terribly busy lately - no kidding!...I'm doing a picture of my own - as you know - and haven't had a chance to think of anything else. You will remember those sessions we used to have in which we used to sit up 'til dawn trying to write material for our shows - well I've been going thro' something like that in an attempt to get the script ready for the picture...I understand you'll be coming out to Hollywood soon to work at the Chi-Chi Club. When you do, please get in touch with me...perhaps I'll be able to get Sinatra and Crosby to hear them...". Boldly signed "Burt" at conclusion, with original (worn) envelope. Very good. Two pieces.
