Inscribed Photograph Signed: "To Fred/Best Wishes/Leo Gordon/1982". B/w, 8x10. The actor's resume is printed on verso. Leo Vincent Gordon (1922-2000) started life as a real life bad guy, receiving an undesirable discharge from the army during World War II and serving 5 years in St Quentin for armed robbery. (He would return to St Quentin is an actor to film Riot in Cell Block 11 (1954). But Gordon turned his life around, reading nearly every book in the prison library and then studying acting on the GI Bill. On screen, Gordon continued to play nasty toughs, however: outlaw gang leader Bill Doolin on Stories of the Century (1954), John Dillinger in Baby Face Nelson (1957), and the fictional "Big Mike McComb" on multiple episodes of Maverick. (He would team up with James Garner again in the feature film of that name, and as a dim-witted bodyguard on four episodes of The Rockford Files. He played multiple roles on The Untouchables. When awarded a Golden Boot in 1997, Gordon remarked, "Thank God for type casting." Gordon was also a scriptwriter, credited on nearly 50 TV episodes and some feature films, including Tobruk (1957) and You Can't Win Em All (1970). As a writer, he was occasionally able to give himself sympathetic roles. Small surface creases. Fine condition.
