Photograph signed: "Bobby/Darin". B/w, 2½x3½ overall, image 2½x2¾ (one surface). Name imprinted at lower margin. Bobby Darin (1936-1973), born Robert Walden Cassotto, emerged as a nightclub and recording star in the late 1950s. Beginning with "Splish Splash" (1958), Darin had a string of hits, including "Dream Lover" (1959) and "Mack the Knife" (1960), which sold two million copies and for which he won two Grammy Awards (Record of the Year and the first Grammy for New Artist). Beginning in 1960, Darin would make the first of his 13 film appearances in Come September, where he met actress Sandra Dee, his wife from 1960-1967. Darin was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1963 for his portrayal of Corporal Jim Tompkins, a shell-shocked GI, in Captain Newman, M.D. (the title character was played by Gregory Peck). Darin, who died at age 37 in 1973 following surgery to repair two malfunctioning heart valves implanted two years earlier, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1999. He was further immortalized in the 2004 biopic, Beyond the Sea (the title of his 1960 hit), starring life-long Darin fan Kevin Spacey. Vertical surface striations at left margin touch the "B" in Bobby and the "D" of Darin. Minor fingerprint smudges (not evident head on). Overall, fine condition.
