Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0011655: FRANKIE DARRO

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly uncommon vintage inscribed fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1939. In good condition for its age. Pint-sized juvenile actor and master stuntman Frankie Darro had a small role in the John Barrymore horror classic The Mad Genius (1931), playing Fedor Ivanoff as a boy, and in 1935, starred in the Gene Autry sci-fi flick The Phantom Empire. A little-known bit of trivia is that Darro was the actor who portrayed Robby the Robot in the space-age classic Forbidden Planet (1956), with his voice dubbed over by Marvin Miller. We haven't seen an example of his signature in a few years!
