Early Curd Jurgens Autograph. CoA
Early Curd Juergens photo postcard (Wien Film, foto Mämmerer) with a clear, authentic signature.
The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Size: 3,5 x 5,5 inches. Good condition (small brownish spot at right margins only).
Curd Gustav Andreas Gottlieb Franz Jürgens (1915 - 1982) was an German-Austrian stage and motion-picture actor of German-French parentage. He was usually billed in English-speaking films as Curt Jurgens. In 1945 Jürgens took Austrian citizenship.
Critical of the Nazis in his native Germany, in 1944 he was shipped to a concentration camp for "political unreliables." Jürgens survived and after the war, became an Austrian citizen.
Like many multilingual German-speaking actors, he went on to play soldiers in innumerable war movies. His breakthrough screen role came in Des Teufels General (1955, The Devil's General) and he came to Hollywood following his appearance in the sensational 1956 Roger Vadim directed French film Et Dieu... créa la femme (And God Created Woman) starring Brigitte Bardot. In 1957, Jürgens made his first Hollywood film, The Enemy Below.
Jürgens became an international film star. He eventually gained the role of the villain in Roger Moore's favourite James Bond film in The Spy Who Loved Me as Karl Stromberg, a sociopathic industrialist seeking to transform the world into an ocean paradise. His last appearance was as Maître Legraine, beside Alain Delon and Claude Jade in the Soviet spy-thriller Teheran 43 in 1981.
