Signed autograph note on a 5x3 card, with a small magazine photo of him attached. Very rare!
Autograph Note signed: "To Emily/good luck/Rodolfo Acosta", 5x3 index card with 1¼x1¼ magazine photo affixed to lower right corner. Character actor Rodolfo Acosta (1920-1974), sometimes credited as Rudy Acosta in American films, appeared in Mexican films from 1946 and made his US debut in John Ford's The Fugitive (1948). In US films, he usually played a bandit, peasant or Indian chieftain, but was able to escape the stereotypes in a few positive roles, like the crusading anti-drug reporter in The Tijuana Story (1957). He was a frequent guest on TV crime dramas and Westerns of the 1950s and 1960s, with multiple appearances on Rawhide, Death Valley Days, Bonanza, High Chapparal (22 episodes), and similar fare. Very lightly toned. Fine condition.
