Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00158213112: TOR JOHNSON

Ultra-, ultra-, ultra-rare and incontrovertibly authentic blue fountain pen autograph and sentiment on a 3x5-inch tan card, sent to an inveterate collector from his home in Stockholm, Sweden in the late 1950s, gorgeously framed up with Ed Wood flick imagery and a professionally-etched nameplate to 19 x 23 inches, in conservation materials. Previously sold by RR Auction, in unmounted format. In very good condition. Undoubtedly the most coveted example of his autograph we have ever seen hit the market. Bald, hulking, troglodyte--like professional wrestler and cult movie favorite Tor Johnson, also known as the Super Swedish Angel in the ring, is beloved of horror, sci-fi and fantasy buffs for his work in the Ed Wood favorites Bride of the Monster (1955), Night of the Ghouls (1959) and Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959), as well as in Ghost Catchers (1944), The Black Sleep (1956), The Unearthly (1957), and The Beast of Yucca Flats (1961).
