Uncommonly early signature in violet fountain pen on a 3x5-inch tan card, acquired in-person by a busy New York City-based autograph hound in the 1950s. around the time of the star's appearance in Forbidden Planet (1956), and decorated with a small Players Directory image. In good condition, with gentle toning. After making his bones on stage, bolstered by the support of close friend and admirer Gregory Peck, Warren Stevens entered films with The Frogmen in 1951. He went on to appear in Deadline-USA (1952) and The Barefoot Contessa (1954), both opposite Humphrey Bogart, before landing the plum role of "Doc" Ostrow in the science-fiction classic Forbidden Planet (1956). Fans of the genre will also remember him in much-loved episodes of T.V.'s "The Twilight Zone" (1962), "The Outer Limits" (1964) and "Star Trek" (1968).
