Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #002033231: PONCIE PONCE

Vintage inscribed black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan card, acquired in-person by indefatigable autograph hound John Virzi in the 1960s and decorated with a small Players Directory image. In good condition. Note that the dark patch on the left side of the scan shown here is a shadow from the camera used to photograph it and is not present on the actual item. Hawaiian-born actor, musician, stand-up comedian, and impressionist Poncie Ponce is remembered for his portrayal of cab driver Kazuo Kim on T.V.'s detective series "Hawaiian Eye" (1959-1963). After leaving the entertainment business, he went on to open a martial arts studio in North Hollywood.
