Cat. #003002042: ALAN REED

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare vintage inscribed blue fountain pen signature-- especially desirable in that he wrote out his full name, Alan Reed Jr.-- on a 3x5-inch off-white card, acquired in-person by an unstoppable autograph hound in May of 1961, as he noted on the verso-- during his run as Fred Flintstone. Decorated with a small book image, with some gentle toning around it; otherwise, in good condition. Stocky, hotheaded character actor Alan Reed had memorable roles in The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946), Viva Zapata! (1952), I, Jury (1953), The Desperate Hours (1955), Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), as well as on classic episodes of television programs like "The Addams Family" (1965), "Batman" (1967) and "The Beverly Hillbillies" (1964-1968). He is, however, best remembered for his cartoon voice work, which included the roles of Boris in Disney's The Lady and the Tramp (1955) and, of course, Fred Flintstone on the beloved animated series of 1960-1966.
