1984 b/w photo of George C. Scott and Susan Tyrell.
The autograph comes with a certificate of authenticity.
George C. Scott was born in Virginia and raised in Detroit.
He made his movie debut in 1959's The Hanging Tree. That same year, he earned the first of four Oscar nominations for his incisive portrayal of big-city attorney Claude Dancer in Anatomy of a Murder. Over the next few years, Scott appeared in a dizzying variety of roles, ranging from Paul Newman's mercenary manager Bert Gordon in The Hustler (1961) to erudite British detective Anthony Gethryn in The List of Adrian Messenger (1962) to apelike General "Buck" Turgidson in Dr. Strangelove (1963).
In 1971, Scott made international headlines by refusing to accept his Best Actor Academy Award for his performance in the title role of Patton, deriding the Oscar ceremony as a "meat parade."
In 1976, he added singing and dancing to his accomplishments when he starred on Broadway in Sly Fox, a musicalization of Ben Jonson's Volpone. In the 1980s, Scott played Fagin in Oliver Twist (1982), Scrooge in A Christmas Carol (1984), and Dupin in The Murders in the Rue Morgue (1987); he also starred in a 1987 TV biopic of Mussolini, and enacted one of the most excruciatingly drawn-out death scenes in television history in The Last Days of Patton (1986).
Scott died on September 22, 1999.
