Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #000472141: JULIAN BECK

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Virtually impossible to find vintage heavy pencil signature clipped from a lined Hollywood guest book, measuring about 1x6 inches. In good condition and just the third we've acquired in 30 years. Note that the image of the star shown here alongside the scan of the autograph is not included. Innovative, avant-garde playwright and theater actor Julian Beck made only a small number of forays into cinema, achieving a kind of immortality with his authentically terrifying portrayal of baleful, skeletal, hollow-eyed preacher Henry Kane in Poltergeist II: The Other Side (1986). Three years into a battle with stomach cancer during its filming, he died prior to its release in 1986, aged only 60 years.
