Cat. #0019940: GEORGE PETRIE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly uncommon vintage inscribed signature on a 4x6-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1940s.  In good condition, with a few negligible handling dings, and ideal for matting.  The friendly-faced character actor, who played essentially every other supporting role on T.V.'s "The Honeymooners" (1954-1955) and "The Jackie Gleason Show" (1952-1957, 1966-1969), was also memorable in classic episodes of "The Andy Griffith Show" (1961-1964), "The Twilight Zone" (1962), "The Addams Family" (1964-1966), "The Munsters" (1966), and "Gunsmoke" (1970).  His brief forays into feature films included small roles as flustered hothead types in Gypsy (1962), Hud (1963) and Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1997).  Before his death, Petrie made something of a comeback, with recurring roles as Harv Smithfield on "Dallas" (1979-1991) and Sid on "Mad About You" (1994-1996).
