Golden Globe-winning actor Peter Graves signs a color lobby card promoting his film Fort Yuma
Lobby Card signed: "Peter Graves". Color, 14x11. Promoting the 1965 Western, Fort Yuma, which starred Graves as Lieutenant Ben Keegan. ©1954, United Artists Corporation. In the year this film was released, Graves also appeared in The Night of the Hunter, Robbers' Roost, The Naked Street, Wichita, The Long Gray Line and The Court Martial of Billy Mitchell. In 1955, he also began his five-year run as Jim Newton on the TV series, Fury, and made guest appearances on several other TV shows: TV Reader's Digest, Hallmark Hall of Fame, Fireside Theatre and Toast of the Town. Graves (1926-2010), born Peter Aurness, appeared in 130 movies, TV shows and video games between 1951 and 2010, but is probably best known as James Phelps, the leader of an elite covert operations unit on the weekly TV adventure series Mission: Impossible (1967-1973). The role earned him a Golden Globe in 1971 and an Emmy Award nomination. (He reprised Phelps in a revamp of the series, which lasted from 1988 to 1990) Modern audiences may also know him as a presenter on the long-running documentary series Biography (1994-2006). Graves often played straight-arrow, authoritative figures, which the team of Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker brilliantly lampooned with Captain Clarence "Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?" Oveur in Airplane! (1980) and its sequel Airplane II: The Sequel (1982). Graves paid his dues in a long string of B movies before Mission: Impossible. One of his more memorable roles from this period was a Nazi spy in the war movie classic Stalag 17 (1953). But Mystery Science Theatre 3000 fans may also recognize Graves from no less than five movies savaged by Joel, Mike and the 'bots: It Conquered the World (1956), Beginning of the End (1957), Attack of the Eye Creatures (1965), SST: Death Flight (1977) and Parts: The Clonus Horror (1979). He was the younger brother of actor James Arness. Ink slightly smudged at the "r" in Graves. Lightly creased and soiled at blank margins. Fine condition.
