Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #001975021: PATRICK O'NEAL

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Extremely uncommon 1961 royalties agreement, boldly signed in blue ink and measuring 8.5 x 11 inches. In good condition, with a light mailing fold down the center. Whatever the line is between elegant heroism and dastardly villainy, Irish-American actor Patrick O'Neal routinely walked it. With his intense, penetrating eyes and cold demeanor, he lent gravitas to films like King Rat (1965), In Harm's Way (1965), Assignment to Kill (1968), and The Way We Were (1973). Among horror, sci-fi and fantasy aficionados, however, he will forever be remembered as the flashy murderer in Chamber of Horrors (1966), John Carter in Silent Night. Bloody Night (1972), Dale Coba in The Stepford Wives (1973), and Fletcher in The Stuff (1985). He was also notable as Harmon Gordon in the classic 1963 episode of "The Twilight Zone" entitled "A Drink from a Certain Fountain." He died of tuberculosis in 1994, aged only 66 years, and this is just the second example of his autograph we have encountered in over 35 years!
