Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #001661441: GENE LYONS

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Exceptionally rare vintage black ink signature on a 3.5 x 5-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person following a play appearance in 1954, as recorded on the verso by the original collector. In good condition and excellent for matting with a favorite photograph. Note that the image of the star shown here alongside the scan of the autograph is not included with the signed piece. Before his tragically early death from complications related to his chronic alcoholism, authoritative character actor Gene Lyons was noteworthy as Commissioner Dennis Randall on T.V.'s "Ironside" (1967-1974). To science-fiction buffs, however, he will forever be remembered as the psychiatrist on the classic 1960 episode of "The Twilight Zone" entitled "King Nine Will Not Return" and as Ambassador Fox on the much-loved "Star Trek" episode, "A Taste of Armageddon" (1967). This is the second authentic example of his autograph we have encountered in over 35 years.
