18. Dennis Eddie in "Disraeli."

Scope and Content

One cigarette card with illustration of Dennis Eddie.

Text on the reverse of the card reads:

Actor-manager, made his first appearance in London in 1900, under George Alexander, in the romantic play, "The Prisoner of Zenda." He has acted with great distinction in a series of important plays, including "Milestones" (surely one of the most artistic plays of recent years, and a veritable mirror of bygone Victorian Days), and "My Lady's Dress." More recently he has played the name part in "Disraeli" with conspicuous success, his interpretation of the famous and romantic life of the great Conservative Statesman being much praised.
