Cat. #0015112012: DICK HAYMES

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Bold vintage pencil signature of the widely popular Argentine crooner and film actor on a 3.5 x 6-inch lined notebook page, acquired in-person in the 1940s.  In good condition, with a few negligible surface crinkles and a light ink stain to the bottom edge, well away from the writing.  Dick Haymes had something of a terrible reputation surrounding his private life, earning the nickname "Mr. Evil" in the gossip columns, partially owing to his allegedly possessive treatment of wife Rita Hayworth.  His downright creepy behavior rendered the lyrics of tunes like "The More I See You (the More I Want You" and "You'll Never Know" just a tad disturbing when he performed them in that beguiling baritone of his!
