RONALD REAGAN (1911-2004) had two careers: actor and politician. His first movie was Love is on the Air (1937) and his 53rd and last film was The Killers (1964). In 1965, he wrote his autobiography, Where's the Rest of Me?, a line from his role as Drake McHugh in King's Row (1942). Reagan left his job hosting television's Death Valley Days during the 1965-1966 season, when he entered politics. Elected Governor of California in 1966, he was reelected in 1970. Reagan began his campaign for the presidency and narrowly lost the 1976 Republican nomination to Gerald Ford. He was elected President in 1980 and was reelected in 1984. After leaving office in 1989, he wrote his second autobiography, An American Life. On February 6, 2001, Reagan became just the third U.S. President to reach the age of 90 and the nation's longest living President until Gerald Ford (d. 2006) lived 45 days longer. RAYMOND MASSEY (1896-1893) never served as President, but he played one on stage and screen. After starring in the title role of Abe Lincoln in Illinois on Broadway, he earned an Oscar nomination for bringing that same role to film (1940). In 1962, he again portrayed Lincoln in How the West Was Won. Although he made other fine stage and film appearances, including the 1936 movie Things to Come, he is probably best remembered as television's Dr. Kildare. Desperate Journey (1942) cast Errol Flynn and Ronald Reagan as downed Royal Air Force pilots outwitting Nazi pursuer Raymond Massey. During Reagan's Presidency, political foes had fun with a movie still from Desperate Journey showing Reagan in a German uniform. Fold crease not near signature. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
