HARVEY LEMBECK and SAMMY MASTERS
Album page signed by actor Harvey Lembeck of Stalag 17, The Phil Silvers Show and the "Beach" movies, and by rockabilly singer and songwriter Sammy Masters. From the collection of radio announcer George Sanders.
Autograph notes signed "Harvey Lembeck" in blue ink and, on verso, "Sammy/Masters/Comac/Records" in black ink. Red pencil marks on front and verso in unknwona hand. 7¾x5¾. Unknown b/w printed photo on verso. Lembeck's note in full: "George, (That's his name) If anything happens with this show may I ask for you on our next show. I think you're a great electrician". Master's note in full: "My Very Best To George Sanders Thanks For The Spins..". Brooklyn-born actor LEMBECK (1923-1982) is probably best remembered as Corporal Rocco Barbella in The Phil Silvers Show (1955-1959). Baby Boomers may also remember him as Brando-wannabe bike punk Eric von Zipper in six of the "Beach" movies (Beach Party, 1963; Bikini Beach, 1964; Pajama Party, 1964; Beach Blanket Bingo, 1965; How to Stuff a Wild Bikini, 1965; and The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini, 1966). Lembeck served in World War II and was a comedian night club comedian and radio sports announcer before being cast as Sam Insigna in the Broadway production of Mister Roberts (1948-1951). He also appeared as Harry Shaprio in the Broadway production of Stalag 17 (1951-192), a role he reprised in the 1953 film adaptation. Stalag 17 established many of his movie roles after that: comic relief in war movies. In all, Shapiro appeared in over 70 movies and TV shows between 1951 and 1982, including a recurrng role as Seaman Gabby Di Julio on Ensign O'Toole (1961-1962). Rockabilly singer and songwriter MASTERS, born in 1930, cracked the Billboard Top 100 with his cult classic single Rockin' Red Wing in 1960. Masters made his debut in straight country at the age of 12, when he appeared on Tulsa, Oklahoma's KTUL radio alongside Bob Will & His Texas Playboys. After relocating to California at 16, he released a few singles with Cormac in 1950 before being sent to Korea in 1950. Masters had a few fruitless years at 4-Star upon his return before releasing Rockin' Red Wing through Lode. He had greater, albeit vicarious, success as a covered artist, particularly with Patsy Cline; his Who Can I Count On? was the B-side for Cline's Top 10 single Crazy. He founded his own label, Gallahad, in 1961 and focused on TV production during the 1950s and 1960s. Masters enjoyed a brief resurgence in Japan and Europe during the 1990s and released Everybody Digs Sammy Masters, his first new material in three decades, in 1997. Lightly toned, Show-through touches both signatures. Missing bottom left corner. Light discoloration at left edge. Neatly torn from binding at left edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
