TELLY SAVALAS $16.80 check signed by the actor in black ink and made out to the Los Angeles Times Check signed: "Telly Savalas" in black ink, 8½x3½. Los Angeles, California, June 22, 1977. Check no. 001829 drawn on his account at the Bank of America, payable to The Los Angeles Times for $16.80. In 1973, Telly Savalas (1922-1994) starred as police lieutenant Theo Kojak in Kojak: The Marcus-Nelson Murders, a television movie based on a real-life homicide. The actor's fully rounded interpretation of a sarcastic and incorruptible New York detective and the popularity of the television production led to a regular CBS series Kojak (1973-1978). The character Kojak and Savalas himself were smokers, but Savalas started to quit after cigarette commercials were banned in 1971. As Savalas quit smoking, so did his character. In a December episode of the show, Kojak exchanged his cigarette for a Tootsie Pop lollipop. The cynical detective's whimsical consumption of the candy soon became a trademark of the show. Before his Kojak role, Savalas could be seen in various guest appearances and films. Most notably, he appeared in Kelly's Heroes (1970) and On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969). His numerous awards include two Golden Globes (six nominations) and an Emmy Award (three nominations). Cancellation holes and stamps, not affecting signature. Top edge torn and worn. Upper right-hand corner missing. Otherwise, fine condition.
