Cat. #0017514: PAT MORITA

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Surprisingly uncommon vintage ballpoint pen signature on a 4x6-inch pale pink autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1975.  In good condition, with the faintest of creases down the center, passing through the writing.  Much-loved Asian-American character actor Pat Morita excelled in offbeat supporting parts on T.V.'s "The Odd Couple" (1972), "Love, American Style" (1971-1972), "M*A*S*H" (1973-1974), "Sanford and Son" (1974-1976), and "Happy Days" (1975-1983).  In 1984, he landed the plum role of sagacious, wisecracking Mr. Miyagi in The Karate Kid (1984), a role he would reprise in the 1986 and 1989 sequels.
