RICHARD EGAN and RORY CALHOUN Photograph of the actors together at the Country Dinner Playhouse in Texas with manager Barbara Day, signed with love to her Inscribed Photograph signed: "Love ya' Bee [drawn star]/Richard Egan" and "Momma you're the greatest/Rory Calhoun" in black felt tip, b/w, 8x10. Taken at the Country Dinner Playhouse with assistant manager Barbara Day. American actor RICHARD EGAN (1921-1987) was a judo instructor for the U. S. Army during World War II, so it's probably no surprise that he became a frequent player in adventure films from the 1950s up until the 1980s. He had a total of 70 film and TV shows on his resume between 1950 and 1987, with most of his starring roles coming in the mid-1950s and 1960s. Egan was also an adequate dramatic actor, making notable appearances with Elvis Presley in his first film Love Me Tender (1956) and in Split Second (1953), A View from Pompey's Head (1955), Slaughter on 10th Avenue (1957), A Summer Place (1959), Pollyanna (1960) and opposite Joan Collins in Esther and the King (1960). He appeared frequently on TV in the 1960s and 1970s, most notably as Jim Redigo in Empire (1962-1963, renamed Redigo after his character in 1963). Egan spent most of his last decade in dinner theatre throughout the U.S. RORY CALHOUN (1922-1999) was a popular film star of the 1950s and early 1960s who specialized in Westerns. He starred in the TV series, The Texan (1958-1960), and continued to appear in films, primarily in character roles, until shortly before his death. Regretting his refusal of a role on Dallas (1978-1991), Calhoun appeared in the soap opera Capitol (1982-1987) for five years beginning in 1982. Growing up, Calhoun had spent several years in reform schools and after convictions for auto theft and armed robbery he even spent some time in prison. However, when his checkered past was revealed by a tabloid, it only enhanced his "bad boy" image. A notorious philanderer, his first wife listed 79 adulterous relationships in her divorce suit against the actor. As a response, Calhoun amusingly quipped, "Heck, she didn't even include half of them." Creased throughout. Lightly toned. Corners worn and creased. Small tears on right and left margin. Ink slightly scuffed in some areas, but clearly legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
