About this Item

The handsome leading man is best remembered for television's "The Sheriff of Cochise" (1956-60, retitled "U.S. Marshal"), though he also appeared in some Westerns and the 3D horror film "Revenge of the Creature." Stunning glossy IPS, heavy stock 16" X 20", Chicago, IL, 1961 March 18. Near fine. Handsome half-length portrait of this he-man in his sheriff's getup, leaning against a saddle and gazing soulfully at the viewer. In the large blank area at upper right, he signed and inscribes large and bold in blue ballpoint: "To My Good Friend / Donald M. Burnell -- / Kindest Regards and Lots / of Luck -- / From / John Bromfield / U.S. Marshal / March 18, 1961 / Amphitheatre -- Chicago." Ink adhesion begins quite strong, though his pen began "spotting" or "dotting" during the last few lines -- still, even those lines are easily legible. This incredibly attractive oversize item was likely created for some promotional purpose, but it bears no photographer's credit or other markings recto or verso. Choice vintage piece signed just after the show's demise -- the pose is known, though it's likely one of a kind in this format. Stunning for display. Bookseller Inventory # 20149
