The sportswriter signs this black and white photograph showing actor Alan Alda portraying him in the 1968 film The Paper Lion
Photograph signed: "George Plimpton" in black felt tip, b/w, 10x8. In the 1968 film The Paper Lion, actor Alan Alda portrays sportswriter George Plimpton in the story based on Plimpton's 1966 nonfiction book, Paper Lion. In the story, Plimpton tries out as a quarterback for the Detroit Lions for a sports article he is writing. George Plimpton (1927-2003) believed in participatory journalism. Seeking to improve his understanding of the subjects he reported on, Plimpton boxed heavyweight champion Archie Moore, played quarterback (briefly) for the Detroit Lions, pitched to major league hitters, entered golf tournaments, and even played percussion instruments with the New York Philharmonic. Plimpton also helped create The Paris Review (1953), and remained its editor-in-chief until his death. Fine condition.
