Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #003222322: DAN SEYMOUR

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Quite scarce vintage black ballpoint pen signature on a 3x5-inch off-white card, probably dating to the late 1970s or early 1980s. In good condition and ideal for matting with a favorite photograph. Please note that he image of the star shown here alongside the scan of the autograph is not included. Described bluntly as "yeccch" in a 1968 book on movie bad guys, porcine, sinister-looking Dan Seymour was the quintessential heavy or slimy villain in films like Casablanca (1942); Road to Morocco (1942); To Have and Have Not (1944); Kismet (1944); the Marx Brothers' A Night in Casablanca (1946); Cloak and Dagger (1946); Key Largo (1948); Johnny Belinda (1948); Reign of Terror (1949); Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion (1950); and the horror flicks Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1950) and Return of the Fly (1959). After a hiatus from films, during which he concentrated on T.V. work, which included the role of Maharajah on "Batman" (1966), he had a bit of a comeback role in The Way We Were in 1973.
