11th April 2018
Appealing collection of nine items signed by either Earl Holliman or Bob Dix, actors from the classic 1956 science fiction film Forbidden Planet, including: an ALS signed “Bob Dix,” one page both sides, 8.5 x 11, January 3, 2018, in part: “My favorite part of filming ‘FP’ was my first day of walking on the Altaire Planet set—Stage 27 on MGM’s main lot. It was stepping on to another planet with a Space Ship in the center”; an unsigned handwritten letter from Holliman, two pages, 8.5 x 11, in part: “’Forbidden Planet’ was fun because we had a young group of fun-loving actors; and a nice crew. Cameraman George Folsey and director Fred Wilcox I had worked with earlier on another MGM film ‘Tennessee Champ’…I’ve always been proud that Rod Serling, with whom I’d worked before, personally asked me to play the starring role of ‘Mike Ferris’ in the very first episode of ‘The Twilight Zone.’” Also included are three 8.5 x 11 printed sheets featuring images of Dix’s roles in Forbidden Planet, Gunsmoke, and Satan’s Sadists, with Dix signing each in black ballpoint; and four glossy photos, 8 x 10 and 10 x 8, depicting Holliman’s roles in Forbidden Planet, The Twilight Zone, and The Sons of Katie Elder, with Holliman signing and inscribing each in silver ink. In overall fine to very fine condition.
