Inscribed Photograph signed: "1983-/Tommy - you have/heard it before, but it is/nice to be remembered-Thanks-/Charles "Durango" Starrett", B/w 8x10. Charles Starrett (1903-1986, born in Athol, Massachusetts) is best known for his portrayal of "The Durango Kid" in a string of B-westerns in the 1940s and early 1950s. He spent his college years playing football for Dartmouth, and upon graduation chose acting as his profession. After a few years of stage work and vaudeville, Starrett signed with Paramount in 1930 but never found the breakthrough role he needed to be a star at the studio. In the mid-1930s, Starrett signed a long-term contract with Columbia and starred in a multitude of B westerns for the studio. But his most famous part, as the Durango Kid, was the role that both made and broke his film career. Return of the Durango Kid (1945), kicked off a series of nearly 70 Durango Kid films. But in the early 1950s, as the B-western faded into the horizon, Starrett retired from the screen. He passed away in 1986 at the age of 82.Three filing holes at right edge. Lightly worn at edges. Ink note (unknown hand) at bottom right. Otherwise, fine condition.
