Cat. #0012415: ANTHONY DEXTER

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage blue ballpoint pen signature on a 4x6-inch off-white autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1950s. Accompanied by a small computer-printed image. In good condition and nice for matting with a favorite photograph. Handsome Anthony Dexter entered films in 1951 when, due to his remarkable resemblance to Rudolph Valentino, he was hand-selected to portray the tragic star in a much-hyped biopic. He went on to play a long string of historical personages-- good and notorious-- in Captain John Smith and Pocahontas (1953), Captain Kidd and the Slave Girl (1954), The Parson and the Outlaw (1957), and The Story of Mankind (1957) before settling into character work in the 1960s. He is remembered by sci-fi and fantasy fans for his roles in 12 to the Moon (1960) and The Phantom Planet (1961), and was noteworthy as Juarez in Thoroughly Modern Millie (1967).
