Cat. #0008042: RICHARD CARLSON

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage inscribed black fountain pen signature on a 2x5-inch light yellow autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1949. In good condition. After memorable work in The Ghost Breakers and Hold That Ghost (1941), stage and screen star Richard Carlson took a hiatus from acting to serve in the Second World War. Upon his return, he found solid work more difficult to come by, and found himself increasingly relegated roles in B-level horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and crime flicks. Among the memorable of these were Behind Locked Doors (1948); The Amazing Mr. X (1948); The Magnetic Monster (1953); the 3-D cult favorites The Maze (1953), It Came from Outer Space (1953) and The Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954); Riders to the Stars (1954); Tormented (1960); The Power (1968); and The Valley of Gwangi (1969). He was also memorable in the Elvis Presley musical Change of Habit in 1969.
