Authentic Alec Guinness Autographs

Sir Alec Guinness, (born 2 April 1914 – 5 August 2000) was an English actor. After an early career on the stage, Guinness featured in several of the Ealing Comedies; including The Ladykillers and Kind Hearts and Coronets in which he played nine different characters.

He is also known for his portrayal of Obi-Wan Kenobi in George Lucas original Star Wars trilogy; for the original film, he nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the 50th Academy Awards.

Guinness’s role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the original Star Wars trilogy, beginning in 1977, brought him worldwide recognition to a new generation; as well as Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations. In letters to his friends, Guinness described the film as “fairy tale rubbish” but the films sense of moral good; and the studios doubling of his initial salary offer; appealed to him and he agreed to take the part of Kenobi on the condition that he would not have to do any publicity to promote the film.

He negotiated a deal for 2.25% of the gross royalties paid to the director, George Lucas, who received one-fifth of the box office takings. This made him very wealthy in his later life. Upon his first viewing of the film, Alec Guinness wrote in his diary; “Its a pretty staggering film as spectacle and brilliant. Exciting, very noisy and warm-hearted. The battle scenes at the end go on for five minutes too long, and some of the dialogue is excruciating and much of it lost in noise, but it remains a vivid experience.
