Three actors sign this black and white publicity photograph promoting the 1951 film!
Photograph signed: "Jeff Corey", "Jerry Maren/Moleman" and "Billy Curtis", B/w 10x8. Publicity photograph for the 1951 film Superman and the Mole Men. Stage and screen actor Jeff Corey (1914-2002) earned a reputation for his Shakespearean roles on New York stages of the late 1940s, before moving to Hollywood for film character roles in the 1940s. After wartime service, during which he received a citation for filming a kamikaze attack on the carrier Yorktown, he returned to films and then to television. He is shown here as a vigilante arguing with Superman (George Reeves). Corey's acting career was interrupted, however, when he refused to "name names" before the House Un-American Activities Committee and was blacklisted for a dozen year. Making the best of his misfortune, Corey became a highly regarded acting teacher, whose students included James Dean, Jack Nicholson, Robin Williams, Rob Reiner and many others. He returned to acting in the 1960s, appearing in dozens of TV episodes, and also directed, including ten episodes of Night Gallery (1970-1972). After his film debut as leader of the Lollipop Guild in The Wizard of Oz (1939), Maren (1920-2018) appeared that same year in two other movies calling for midgets: Our Gang's Tiny Troubles and the Marx Brothers' At the Circus. He played Buster Brown in ads for the shoe company of the same name and threw confetti at the end of TV's Gong Show (1976-1978). He also appeared in an un credited role as a Mole Man in the 1951 Superman movie Superman and the Mole-Men and worked as a Little Oscar for Oscar Mayer & Co. in the 1950's. A quarter century after his first films, he starred in Little Cigars (1973). Billy Curtis (1909-1988) was an American television and film actor who was also a dwarf. At the height of four feet and two inches, the actor began his career working in western and science fiction films. He appeared in The Wizard of Oz as a munchkin. He also made appearances in the 1950's television series Adventures of Superman. In the 1973 film High Plains Drifter he worked alongside Clint Eastwood as Mordecai the friendly dwarf. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
