WILLIAM BENDIX
The radio and television star signs and inscribes on a picture of him and Barbara Norton, then head of the Public Relations department at the Sheraton-Park Hotel.
Inscribed photograph signed: "To Barbara/You're a Pistol/Bill Bendix", in blue ink, B/w 7x9. William Bendix (1906-1964) may be best remembered as the star of the sitcom The Life of Riley on radio (1944-1951) and television (1953-1958). As the bumbling Riley he popularized the catch phrase, "What a revoltin' development this is!" Bendix had received an Oscar nomination as Best Supporting Actor for Wake Island (1942). He had the title role in The Babe Ruth Story (1948. Bendix had been a Yankee batboy in the 1920s, seeing Ruth hit over 100 homers.) Among his other prominent films was A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1949, as Sir Sagramore). He starred in the pilot of Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone. A new CBS-TV series starring Bendix, Bill and Martha, had been scheduled for the Fall Season, 1964. CBS decided to cancel the series, without airing an episode, on the grounds of Bendix's shaky health. Bendix sued, claiming he was in perfect health, and that the cancellation harmed his professional reputation. Bendix died on December 14, 1964. Tape on corners. Lightly soiled at bottom. Corner on top right torn. Otherwise, fine condition.
