ED AMES and RICHARD DWYER. ANS: "Ed Ames", 1p, 6¾x9¼. Portland, Oregon, no date, but circa May 1968. To unknown recipient. In full: "It's a Great pleasure to be in Portland -". On verso, ANS: "Richard/Dwyer". No place, circa 1968. To unknown recipient. In full: "It's so nice to see you again - Thanks for being so nice to Ice Follies Take Care". Beneath his signature, Dwyer has written: "'Ice Follies/of 68'". Magazine photograph, color, 3¾x¾, affixed at lower left margin. Ames was in Portland, Oregon from May 1-5, 1968 to appear at the annual Trailer Life Show at the Memorial Coliseum. It was the first appearance in the Northwest for Ames, who was scheduled to perform for a total of eight shows. Singer and stage and television actor ED AMES (born Edmond Dantes Urick in 1927) is best known to television audiences for his role as Mingo (1964-1968) on the TV series, Daniel Boone, and for a related appearance on The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson, on which he threw a tomahawk into the groin of a target, creating a classic television moment. Ames has also appeared as a guest star in a number of TV series, from The Rifleman (1962) to The Marshal (1995), and he has appeared in two made-for-TV movies, Cricket on the Hearth and Androcles and the Lion (both 1967), and in the 1978 miniseries, Greatest Heroes of the Bible. Long before he went into acting, however, Ames, who was nicknamed "The Boston Baritone", had found success as a singer, first with his brothers (Joe, Gene and Vic), who appeared regularly in nightclubs and had their own TV show, The Ames Brothers Show, in 1955. In the 1960s, Ames was a successful solo artist, charting four Top 20 hits: "Try to Remember" and "Time, Time" (both 1966); "My Cup Runneth Over" (1967); and, "Who Will Answer?" in 1968. We have found references to RICHARD DWYER, who was billed as "Mr. Debonair", appearing with the Ice Follies from 1959-1979, the year the show merged with Holiday on Ice. He later appeared on the television special, Brian Boitano's Skating Spectacular, in 2003, the year Dwyer received a special award from the Ice Skating Institute at their 44th Annual International Conference and Trade Show in Las Vegas. Lightly creased. Show through of ink on both sides (all writing legible). Light show through of photograph at Ames' signature. Irregular left edge from removal from bound book. Fine condition.
