Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Ultra-scarce vintage handwritten, inscribed and signed letter in blue ballpoint pen on a sheet of roughly 5x7-inch tan stationery, sent to fellow actor Peter Hansen in March of 1974. In good condition, with the expected mailing folds. Note that the image of the star shown here alongside the scan of the signed piece is not included. With his sepulchral speaking voice and skeletal appearance, character actor Milton Parsons excelled at playing creepy undertakers, psychotics, mad-eyed preachers, henchmen, kooky scientists, and other eccentrics. He was almost exclusively associated with the horror, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, and crime film genres, a veritable scene-swiper in Another Thin Man (1939), Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941), Hold That Ghost (1941), Dressed to Kill (1941), The Hidden Hand (1942), Whispering Ghosts (1942), Cry of the Werewolf (1944), Dick Tracy (1945), The Verdict (1946), Dick Tracy vs. Cueball (1946), Charlie Chan in Dark Alibi (1946), Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome (1947), The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (1947), The Cobra Strikes (1948), White Heat (1949), The Monster That Challenged the World (1957), The Haunted Palace (1957), The Cat Creature (1973), and The Dead Don't Die (1975). He also appeared on multiple episodes of "The Twilight Zone" (1961-1963).
