Cat. #0016731442: MYRON MCCORMICK

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rather scarce vintage signature in heavy pencil on a 3 x 4.75-inch portion of a tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1940s.  In good condition, with slightly irregular trimming to the bottom edge, which could easily be tidied up.  Radio and stage character actor Myron McCormick made roughly 40 forays into screen and television work, almost invariably cast as fast-talking, wheeling and dealing, hotheaded types, probably owing to his much-lauded portrayal of conman Luther Bills in Broadway's "South Pacific" (1950).  He was memorable in  films like The Fight for Life (1940), Jolson Sings Again (1949), Three for the Show (1955), No Time for Sergeants (1958), The Man Who Understood Women (1959), The Hustler (1961), and A Public Affair (1962) before his early death from cancer at the age of 54.
