The film referenced in this contract was later titled Deadly Encounter (which was also known as American Eagle). The made-for-TV movie, which was filmed in Mexico and at the Pima Air Museum in Tucson, Arizona, starred Hagman as Sam and Susan Anspach as Chris Butler. It was first aired on December 19, 1982. That year, Hagman was starring as J.R. Ewing on two TV series, Dallas and Knots Landing, and he also appeared as himself in the TV special, Night of 100 Stars. Stage, screen and television actor Larry Hagman (born in 1931), the son of actress Mary Martin, had received his most prominent acting assignment as eternally flustered astronaut Tony Nelson on the TV sitcom, I Dream of Jeannie, in 1965. After five years on Jeannie, he took a few film and TV-movie parts, co-starred with Donna Mills on the 1971 sitcom, The Good Life, co-starred with Lauren Bacall in the TV rendition of the Broadway musical, Applesauce, and acted in and directed the low-grade horror spoof, Beware! The Blob. In 1978, he first appeared in his best known role, John Ross "J.R." Ewing, on the nighttime serial, Dallas (1978-1990). During Dallas' run, Hagman was also seen in the role (1980-1982) on Knots Landing, a spin-off of the series, and he reprised the character in two made-for-TV films, Dallas: J.R. Returns (1996) and Dallas: War of the Ewings (1998). Hagman also narrated Dallas: The Early Years in 1986. In 1997, Hagman had recovered from a liver transplant sufficiently to make a television comeback as the Honorable Judge Luther Charbonnet in the critically acclaimed CBS series, Orleans. Slightly creased. Staple holes at upper left blank corners. Fine condition.
