Cat. #0014542: LORNE GREENE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Uncommon vintage signature in black felt-tip pen on a 3.25 x 5.5-inch pale green autograph album page, fun in that he adds "Best Bonanza wishes", acquired in-person in the 1970s. In good condition and ideal for matting. Character actor Lorne Greene began his career as a newscaster in his native Canada, where he gained fame for his rich, deep, authoritarian voice. The latter served him well after his transition to television and film work in the late 1940s, first as a narrator, and then as a performer. Despite his long and varied career, he will always be remembered for his portrayal of Ben Cartwright on nearly 450 episodes of the hit show "Bonanza" (1959-1973). He also played Commander Adama on T.V.'s beloved sci-fi series "Battlestar Gallactica" (1978-1979).
