IRON EYES CODY
Shown atop horses with Lana Wood in a scene from Grayeagle.
Photograph signed: "Iron Eyes Cody". B/w, 10x7¾ overall, image 9½x6¾ (one surface). Still from the 1977 film, Grayeagle, picturing Cody in his role as Standing Bear and Lana Wood as Beth Colter. ©1977, American International. Captioned at lower margin. Grayeagle, which starred Alex Cord in the title role, was a reworking of the 1956 John Ford classic, The Searchers, but told from the Indians' point of view. The film, which was directed by Charles B. Pierce, also starred Ben Johnson and Jack Elam. Iron Eyes Cody (1907-1999) appeared in over 100 films and more than 35 television series as an American Indian but his name at birth was Espera DeCorti (he was the son of two first generation Italian immigrants). Cody, who appeared in a number of films with Roy Rogers, including Young Bill Hickock, Young Buffalo Bill, In Old Cheyenne, Under Nevada Skies, North of the Great Divide, Son of Paleface and Alias Jesse James, was best known as the Indian who sheds a tear for a blighted American environment in the "Keep America Beautiful" television ads that ran from 1971 into the 1980s. Lightly creased at blank margins, ¼-inch tear at upper right blank edge. Minor surface creases (most not evident head on), 1 at the "I" of Iron. Fine condition.
