Signature in black ink on 5x3 card
Autograph sentiment signed: "Thank you /Sincerely/Leon Ames", 5x3 card.Actor Leon Ames (1902-1993), born Leon Waycoff, began his film career as a matinee idol but is best known for playing a befuddled patriarch in both films and on television. Ames, who made his film debut in 1931, played in a long list of features through the 1980s, including Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932), Meet Me in St. Louis (1944), Little Women (1949), Peyton Place (1957), From the Terrace (1960), The Absent-Minded Professor (1961), Tora! Tora! Tora! (1970), On a Clear Day You Can See Forever (1970), Testament (1983) and Peggy Sue Got Married (1986, his last film). He debuted on television as the star of Life With Father (1953-1955), and Ames would go on to starring series roles in Father of the Bride (1961-1962) and Mr. Ed (1963-1965, as neighbor Gordon Kirkwood). Ames also made several TV movies and appeared as a guest star on a long list of series, beginning with early TV anthologies. He was also the owner of a successful Los Angeles automobile dealership.
