A page from an autograph album, signed with a fountain pen by Nigel Patrick, the English actor who, having already enjoyed success in the West End, put his movie career on hold until after service in World War II, during which, as a Lieutenant Colonel in the King's Royal Rifle Corps, he fought in the Middle East, North Africa and Italy. During the late 1940s and 1950s he became a popular, debonair leading man in British film and was voted the seventh most popular British film star with the public in 1952. He scored a notable success in The Sound Barrier (1952), under the direction of David Lean, and later appeared as Race in The League Of Gentlemen (1959) and the thought provoking Sapphire (1959), the winner of Best British Film at the 1960 BAFTA Film Awards.
