Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0012311: RICHARD DENNING

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rather uncommon vintage blue ballpoint pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1950s and decorated with a small Players Directory image. The affixed clipping shows some scuffing and there is a page notation in pencil in the upper right-hand corner; otherwise, in good condition and nice for matting with a favorite photograph. Authoritative leading man Richard Denning, who was the longtime husband of scream queen Evelyn Ankers, starred in a long string of horror, sci-fi and fantasy flicks, including Television Spy (1939), Beyond the Blue Horizon (1942), Unknown Island (1948), Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954), Target Earth (1954), Creature with the Atom Brain (1955), Day the World Ended (1955), The Black Scorpion (1957), and Twice-Told Tales (1963). Weary of B-level fare, he abandoned his film career in the 1970s, but over the course of three decades, had a recurring role as Governor Paul Jameson on T.V.'s "Hawaii Five-O" (1968-1980).
