Four actors sign this 6x4 photograph showing the Republic Pictures logo
Photograph signed: "John Agar", "Rex Allen", "Clayton Moore" and "Bruce Bennett", in various inks, color, 6x4. A rising star in such war and Western films as She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949), the first of six movies with his friend John Wayne, handsome actor JOHN AGAR (1921-2002) was largely consigned to low budget science fiction movies after his divorce from Shirley Temple in 1950. (The 27-year-old actor had married 17-year-old Temple in 1945 after a whirlwind courtship.) He was often sought for film and TV character roles, especially Westerns. He was among the first actors to lend his voice to video games (beginning with The Pandora Directive, 1996). Revenge of the Creature, one of Agar's many SF projects, was the 3-D sequel to the 1954 hit, The Creature from the Black Lagoon. "The Arizona Cowboy", singer and actor REX ALLEN (1920-1999), appeared on stage, rodeo and radio (National Barn Dance) before beginning his film career. In a span of five years (1949-1954) he made over 20 Westerns, many featuring sidekick Slim Pickens and Allen's horse Ko Ko (billed as "the Miracle Horse of the Movies"). Allen starred in TV's Frontier Doctor (1956), and was the narrator in many Disney films, including The Incredible Journey (1963) and Charlotte's Web (1973). CLAYTON MOORE (1914-1999) entered show business as a young circus acrobat. He worked his way up the ladder in Hollywood Westerns from extra to stunt man to supporting actor, reaching stardom on television as The Lone Ranger from 1949-1952 and 1954-1957. Thereafter he made a good living from commercials and public appearances as The Lone Ranger, the role for which he is best known, and fondly remembered. Moore starred in the title role in two Republic Pictures serials, Jesse James Rides Again (1947) and The Adventures of Frank and Jesse James (1948). A collegiate track star at the University of Washington, HERMAN BRIX (1906-2007) won a silver medal in the shot put at the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam. When Edgar Rice Burroughs decided to produce his own film version of Tarzan, he cast Brix in the lead (The New Adventures of Tarzan, 1935). Brix studied acting, adopted the screen name of Bruce Bennett, and played second leads and supporting roles in many films, including Sahara (1943), Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948) and The Outsider (1961). Fine condition.
