Cat. #0012453: GEORGE DOLENZ

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage fountain pen signature on a 2 x 4.5-inch portion of a pale blue autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1951 and attached with glue to a slightly larger piece of orange paper, which has, itself, been taped to a 4x6-inch white card.  In good condition, beyond the trimming and unusual format.  Italian-born supporting actor George Dolenz, who was a master of multiple dialects, played urbane, Continental types-- sometimes genteel and sometimes villainous-- in classic films like The Strange Death of Adolf Hitler (1943), Moonlight in Vermont (1943), In Society (1944), horror's The Climax (1944) with Boris Karloff, the horror-themed comedy Scared Stiff (1953), and The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (1962).  He died of a heart attack at the age of 55 and his autograph is rather elusive in any format.
