Cat. #0016101102: MICHAEL LANDON

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare vintage 8x10-inch color portrait, boldly signed in black felt-tip pen in the early 1980s. In good condition. Handsome Michael Landon starred as the titular lycanthrope in the cult horror flickĀ I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957) two years before landing the plum role of Little Joe Cartwright on T.V.'s "Bonanza" (1959-1973). He left the show to star as Charles Ingalls on the sensitive, spiritually uplifting "Little House on the Prairie" (1974-1983), further cementing his fatherly, saintly image, which came to full fruition with the frankly religious "Highway to Heaven" (1984-1989). The beloved star died tragically of liver and pancreatic cancer at the age of 54 and authentic examples of his heavily-forged signature are highly difficult to come by.
