Cat. #0017702: ARNOLD MOSS

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Uncommon ballpoint pen signature on a 3x5-inch white card, dating to the 1980s. In very good condition and ideal for matting. Note that the image of the star shown alongside the scan of the signed card here is not included. Actor and theater historian Dr. Arnold Moss began his career as a Shakespearean stage performer, bringing aristocratic bearing, perfect diction and a resounding bass voice to character roles in films. Often compared to George Macready, he was a master of urbane villainy, playing despicable Arab chieftains, Mexican bandits and Indian maharajahs in Temptation (1946), The Loves of Carmen (1948), The Reign of Terror (1949), Border Incident (1949), Mask of the Avenger (1951), Viva Zapata! (1952), Salome (1953), The Fool Killer (1965), and Gambit (1966). Perhaps his most famous role-- probably to his chagin!-- was that of the snarky head alien in the campy sci-fi classic The 27th Day (1957). He was also terrific as Anton Karidian, wicked, mysterious alter-ego of the tyrannical Governor Kodos of Tarsus IV, on T.V.'s "Star Trek" (1966).
