VERY RARE vintage autograph signed by John Paddy Carstairs famed British Director.
When purchasing autographs you should always look for provenance. Many sellers of autographs have big problems providing provenance and it is a sad reality that fakes abound on the internet.
This autograph has wonderful provenance. It came from the collection of Julian Holloway (Stanley Holloway’s son). Stanley Holloway had a distinguished career on stage and screen and starred in My Fair Lady with Audrey Hepburn. He helped his son accumulate a collection of autographs that included some of the great actors and actresses.
I acquired the collection about 10 years ago and it included this autograph by John Paddy Carstairs inscibed "To Junior (aka Julian Holloway) Thanks for asking me John Paddy Carstairs".
