Despite a promising start in The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942), Richard Travis (1913-1989) never developed into a star. Backlash (1947), in which he played a lawyer trying to blame his wife for a crime he committed, was one of his few starring roles. He found steady work in Poverty Row features, however, and was seen frequently in guest spots on TV crime and Western series of the 1950s and sixties. He starred in the one-season series Code 3 (1957). Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. Corners worn and creased. Otherwise, Fine condition.
