JAY SILVERHEELS
The actor is shown in character as Tonto from the television series The Lone Ranger in this black and white photograph.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To my Friend/Marshall Bean/"God Bless you"/Jay Silverheels/'Tonto'". B/w, 8x10. Best known as "Tonto", "the faithful Indian companion" of television's The Lone Ranger (1949-1957), Silverheels (1918-1980) had many other film roles, including three performances as Geronimo in Westerns of the 1950s. Dissatisfied with what he considered the stereotyped parts assigned to "Tonto", he founded the Indian Actors Workshop in Hollywood in the late 1960s with the dual goals of creating more acting opportunities for Native Americans and of improving their screen image. In 1979 he became the first American Indian (a full-blooded Mohawk) with a star in Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Lightly creased. Lightly worn. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
