Cat. #005212211: GEORGE TOBIAS

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly scarce vintage black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch light blue autograph album page, acquired in-person in the late 1940s and decorated with a Players' Directory image. In good condition. Perhaps best remembered for his portrayal of the Stephens' long-suffering neighbor Abner Kravitz on T.V.'s "Bewitched" (1964-1971), versatile character actor George Tobias' career had already spanned nearly four decades by the time the sitcom premiered. He excelled at playing none-too-bright sidekicks, villains and ethnic types, most notably in Ninotchka (1939), They Drive By Night (1940), Sergeant York (1941), The Bride Came C.O.D. (1941), Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942), Mildred Pierce (1945), My Wild Irish Rose (1947), The Set-Up (1940) The Glenn Miller Story (1954), The Seven Little Foys (1955), and Silk Stockings (1957). This is just the fifth example of his autograph we have ever encountered.
