Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare and terrific vintage 10x8-inch black and white still from Planet of the Apes (1968), boldly signed and inscribed in black felt-tip marker in-person for an inveterate New York City-based collector in the 1980s. In good condition. 1930s and 1940s child star Roddy McDowall was memorable in films like Murder in the Family (1938), Just William (1940), Man Hunt (1941), How Green Was My Valley (1941), Son of Fury (1942), My Friend Flicka (1943), Lassie Come Home (1943), and The Keys of the Kingdom (1944).  In adulthood, he was increasingly confined to television work, including a classic episode of "The Twilight Zone" entitled "People Are Alike All Over" (1960) and the role of the villain Bookworm on "Batman" (1966).  However, he did have key roles in historical epics, and horror, sci-fi and fantasy films, most notably The Longest Day (1962); Cleopatra (1963); The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965); It! (1967); The Poseidon Adventure (1972); Fright Night (1985) and Fright Night 2 (1988); and the beloved Planet of the Apes series of the 1960s and 1970s, in the starring role of Cornelius.
