Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0015451: JOHN HUBBARD

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Extremely uncommon vintage 3.5 x 5.5-inch black and white candid snapshot, shown alongside a fan, boldly signed and inscribed to her in violet fountain pen in the 1940s.  This is just the second example we have ever encountered.  In good condition, with a touch of soiling in spots and an autograph that could easily be clipped from the image or matted out.  Handsome John Hubbard began his career in Hal Roach comedies and dramas, including the sci-fi flick One Million B.C. (1940), and musicals like You'll Never Get Rich (1941).  During the early 1940s, he enjoyed a brief stint as a leading man, during which he starred as Dr. John Banning in the Universal horror gem The Mummy's Tomb (1942), alongside Elyse Knox, Dick Foran and Lon Chaney, Jr.  However, following a hiatus from Hollywood to join the military during the Second World War, he was re-relegated to supporting roles.  His extensive television work included classic episodes of "The Mickey Rooney Show" (1954-1955), "77 Sunset Strip" (1958-1961), "The Munsters" (1964), "Gunsmoke" (1965), "Batman" (1966), "Bonanza" (1964-1967), and other programs.
