Inscribed photograph signed: "To/Violet/Richard Egan", in green ink, B/w 3½x5¾. American actor RichardEgan(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 sight in adventure films from the 1950s to 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 a fair-to-middlin' dramatic actor, with 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. This photograph is from the collection of Francis and Violet Zane, Hawaii natives who moved to California in the 1920's. Francis Zane had a job at the historic Curran Theater and the San Francisco Opera House, which is where he began his massive collection, with photographs and materials ranging from the 1920's to 1960's. The location and luck of his occupation would land him smack dab in the middle of the celebrity world, allowing him to capture some of the most unique and interesting pieces of Hollywood History. Corners slightly worn. Slightly toned. Fine condition.
