Cat. #00159145: TED KNIGHT

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce signature in bold black felt-tip marker on a 4x6-inch light green autograph album page, acquired in-person by inveterate collector and photographer Edward Gelman in 1981. Paired with a small computer-printed image of the star and in good condition, with some minor creasing to the left side, away from the writing. Nice for matting with a favorite photograph. Best known for his portrayals of inept, pearly-toothed anchorman Ted Baxter on "Mary Tyler Moore" (1970-1977) and cartoonist Henry Rush on "Too Close for Comfort" (1980-1987), character actor Ted Knight spent the whole of his career playing similar puffed-up, explosive types on the large and small screens.  One of his last roles before his early death of cancer at age 62 was that of Judge Elihu Smalls, the victim of countless barbs by Rodney Dangerfield, in Caddyshack (1980).
