Cat. #0015701: SAM JAFFE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Uncommon vintage 8x10-inch matte-finish black and white portrait as Dr. David Zorba on T.V.'s "Ben Casey" (1961-1965), boldly signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint pen in the 1960s. Very mild creasing to the right border; otherwise, in very fine condition. Esteemed character actor Sam Jaffe's Einstein-like shock of white hair and intense, cerebral visage made him the ideal scientist, physician or wise old man. He made several memorable contributions to the horror, sci-fi and fantasy genres, with key roles in The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), The Dunwich Horror (1970), The Tell-Tale Heart (1971), Disney's semi-animated Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971), Battle Beyond the Stars (1980), and Nothing Lasts Forever (1984).
