Robert Sidney Bowen “Dave Dawson On Guadalcanal” 1943 Book Signed Autograph World War II – Robert Sidney Bowen-“Dave Dawson On Guadalcanal”-1943-Crown Pub-5″ X 8″-246 pages-hardcover book with jacket-Signed By Author.

Robert Sidney Bowen, Jr. (1900-April 11, 1977) was a World War I ace, test pilot, newspaper journalist, magazine editor and author who was born in Boston, Massachusetts and died of cancer in Honolulu, Hawaii at the age of 76.

He is best known for his boys’ series books written during World War II, the Dave Dawson War Adventure Series and the Red Randall Series.

He also worked under the name R. Sidney Bowen and under the pseudonym James Robert Richard.

Bowen turned to writing in 1930, using his prestige as editor-in-chief of Aviation Magazine to write “Flying From The Ground Up,” a non-fiction work on how to fly an airplane.

He began freelancing for pulp magazines. In 1934, he started his own pulp magazine, Dusty Ayres And His Battle Birds, for Popular Publications.

Twelve issues were released, the first eleven published monthly from July 1934 through July 1935, with most issues released monthly.

Bowen continued writing for mystery, adventure, sports, and aviation pulp magazines through the 1950s.

After the invasion of Poland by Germany in 1939 sparked World War II, Crown Publishers called Bowen, asking for an adventure story based on the war.[3]

The Dave Dawson series, also known as the War Adventure series, was the result.

Bowen got to work immediately, and the first book, Dave Dawson At Dunkirk, was published in 1941.

A total of 15 volumes were released between 1941 and 1946.

As of 1945, the series had sold over 2,000,000 copies.

Bowen was earning 2 1/2 cents per copy sold, netting him nearly $10,000 a year.

All volumes, except for the scarce final volume, were subsequently reprinted (with cheaper quality and prices) by Saalfield Publishers in Akron, Ohio.

Inspired by the success of the Dave Dawson books, Crown’s competing publisher Grosset & Dunlap hired Bowen to write a similar series for them.

The Red Randall series debuted in 1944, selling 200,000 copies its first year.

The book has been autographed on the title page by R. Sidney Bowen in blue fountain pen………..BOTH BOOK AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN NICE CONDITION. JACKET HAS WEAR……………..

77 Sunset Strip(Warner Bros 1289)Music from this year’s hottest new television show!

Photo cover is signed by Efrem Zimbalist Jr, Roger Smith, and Edd Byrnes.

Condition of the vinyl,cover, and autographs is VERY GOOD.

77 Sunset Strip is an hour-length American television private detective series created by Roy Huggins and starring Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Roger Smith, and Edd Byrnes.

The show was the subject of an ownership battle between Roy Huggins and Warner Brothers, which was the proximate cause of Huggins’ departure from the studio.

The series was based on novels and short stories written by Huggins prior to his arrival at Warners, but, as a matter of legal record, derived from a brief Caribbean theatrical release of its pilot, Girl on the Run.

The show ran from 1958 to 1964 and won the 1960 Golden Globe Award for best TV series.

Lee Aaker “Rin Tin Tin” 1961 Color Comic Book Signed Autograph Cover Photo

Lee Aaker “Rin Tin Tin” 1961 Color Comic Book Signed Autograph Cover Photo – “Rin Tin Tin And Rusty”-Nov. 37 Feb-April 1961-7 1/2″ X 10 1/2″-Dell Color Comic Book.

This color comic book features Rin Tin Tin and Rusty (Lee Aaker) in an original color scene on the front coverChild actor Lee Aaker began making unbilled bit appearances in films in 1951.

His roles increased in size and importance after his impressive showing as the contentious title character in the “Ransom of Red Chief” episode in O. Henry’s Full House (1952).

One of his better-known screen appearances was as yet another kidnap victim, the son of scientist Gene Barry, in The Atomic City (1952).

To anyone born between 1945 and 1960, he will always be remembered as honorary cavalry corporal Rusty on TV’s Rin Tin Tin, which ran from 1954 to 1958.

After Rin Tin Tin ran its course, Aaker moved into the production end of the business, serving as an assistant to producer Herbert B. Leonard (who’d also been his Rin Tin Tin mentor) on the ’60s series Route 66.

Like many former child stars, Lee Aaker has occasionally been plagued by impostors claiming to be him;

one enterprising phony successful posed as Aaker at several nostalgia conventions of the 1980s before one of the actor’s sharper-eyed fans blew the whistle.

The comic book has been autographed on the front by “Lee Aaker-Rusty” with a fountain pen in green……………………….BOTH COMIC BOOK AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN USED CONDITION……………. .

Abbott And Costello “Hit The Ice” Sheet Music 1943 Signed Autograph Cover Photo

Abbott And Costello “Hit The Ice” Sheet Music 1943 Signed Autograph Cover Photo – “I’m Like A Fish Out Of Water”-1943-Miller Music-sheet music. This song is featured in the 1943-Universal Movie-“Hit The Ice”.

The movie stars Bud Abbott and Lou Costello and they are featured on the front cover of the sheet music in an original scene.

The Abbott & Costello vehicle Hit the Ice started life as satire of health clinics, with Lou Costello cast as a hypochondriac who used a streetcar conductor’s change-purse to dispense pills to himself.

By the time the film hit the screens, it was a standard A&C; melange of comedy, music and fast-paced chase scenes, with nary a pill in sight.

Bud and Lou are cast as would-be photojournalists Flash and Tubby, who inadvertently snap a picture of two bank robbers leaving the scene of the crime.

Accused of knocking over the bank themselves, our heroes find it expedient to hide out at a Sun Valley ski resort.

Here they tie up with Silky Fellowsby (Sheldon Leonard), the mastermind of the bank heist, who is led to believe that Flash and Tubby are a couple of Detroit “hit men”.

In the course of events, Tubby falls in love with Silky’s girl Marcia Manning (Ginny Simms), romancing her by pretending (with Flash’s dubious assistance) to be an accomplished concert pianist.

The final confrontation with the crooks leads to an elaborate chase on skis, with all manner of hilarious (and wildly impossible) sight gags.

The barely necessary romantic subplot involves doctor Bill Elliot (Patric Knowles) and nurse Peggy Osborne (played by Elyse Knox, the mother of actor Mark Harmon).

Best bits: the classic “packing-unpacking routine, a zany skating sequence, and the old “I’ll bet I can stand next to you and you can’t touch me” chestnut.

Hit the Ice was Lou Costello’s last film before rheumatic fever kept him off screen for a full year.

The sheet music has been autographed on the front by Bud Abbott in turquoise fountain pen and Lou Costello in blue fountain pen……BOTH SHEET MUSIC AND AUTOGRAPHS ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION………

F. Murray Abraham Color Photo Signed Autograph 1984 Movie Scene “Amadeus”

F. Murray Abraham Color Photo Signed Autograph 1984 Movie Scene “Amadeus” – This item is an 8″ X 10″,color photo of F. Murray Abraham in a scene from the 1984 Movie-“Amadeus”.

For this film adaptation of Peter Shaffer’s Broadway hit, director Milos Forman returned to the city of Prague that he’d left behind during the Czech political crises of 1968, bringing along his usual cinematographer and fellow Czech expatriate, Miroslav Ondrícek.

Amadeus is an expansion of a Viennese “urban legend” concerning the death of 18th century musical genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

From the vantage point of an insane asylum, aging royal composer Salieri (F. Murray Abraham) recalls the events of three decades earlier, when the young Mozart (Tom Hulce) first gained favor in the court of Austrian emperor Joseph II (Jeffrey Jones).

Salieri was incensed that God would bless so vulgar and obnoxious a young snipe as Mozart with divine genius.

Why was Salieri — so disciplined, so devoted to his art, and so willing to toady to his superiors — not touched by God?

Unable to match Mozart’s talent, Salieri uses his influence in court to sabotage the young upstart’s career.

Disguising himself as a mysterious benefactor, Salieri commissions the backbreaking Requiem, which eventually costs Mozart his health, wealth, and life.

Among the film’s many pearls of dialogue, the best line goes to the emperor, who rejects a Mozart composition on the grounds that it has “too many notes.”

Amadeus won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Actor for F. Murray Abraham.

Adam-12 Martin Milner Kent McCord TV Guide Magazine 1969 Signed Autograph Color Cover Photo

Adam-12 Martin Milner Kent McCord TV Guide Magazine 1969 Signed Autograph Color Cover Photo – TV Guide Magazine-July 5,1969-33 pages.This vintage TV Guide Magazine-which originally sold for fifteen cents-features a color cover photo of Martin Milner and Ken McCord plus an article with photos on “Adam-12”.

Adam-12 was a television police drama, which followed two uniformed officers – Reed and Malloy – as they patrolled the streets of Los Angeles in their patrol unit, 1-Adam-12.

Created by Jack Webb of Dragnet fame, the series tried to capture a day in the life of a typical patrol officer as realistically as possible.

The show ran for 7 seasons on NBC, from 1968 through 1975, and helped introduce police procedures and police jargon to the general public.

The program followed the daily activities of a pair of LAPD patrol officers – seven-year veteran officer Peter ‘Pete’ Malloy (Martin Milner) and rookie officer James ‘Jim’ Reed (Kent McCord) – and to a lesser extent Sergeant William “Mac” MacDonald (William Boyett).

Much like Dragnet, the episodes were based on true incidents culled from LAPD case files.

John Agar “Hand Of Death” Photo Signed Autograph Movie Scene

John Agar “Hand Of Death” Photo Signed Autograph Movie Scene – This item is an 8″ X 10″,black and white lithograph photo of John Agar in a scene from the 1962 Movie-“Hand Of Death”.

The lithograph photo has been mounted on an 8″ X 10″ piece of photography paper.

Scientist Alex March (John Agar) is working on developing what he hopes will be a new, non-lethal form of nerve gas — but following an accident in his lab, he discovers that not only is the gas deadly, but also that it has invaded his entire body, and his touch is instantly fatal to any other living thing.

He also realizes that the only thing keeping him alive is the partial immunity that he has developed over the course of months of work, which will soon wear off.

He goes into hiding in his employer’s home, hoping that a cure can be found, but he’s already begun to go mad, tormented by the deaths he’s caused and the mounting pain as the gas begins to affect him.

Finally, the gas transforms him into a scaly, misshapen creature (vaguely resembling the Lizard from Marvel Comics, who was also, interestingly, a stricken research chemist).

He goes on a rampage through suburban Los Angeles while the police hunt for him, and his fiancée (Paula Raymond) desperately hopes that he’ll come to his senses long enough to surrender and allow himself to be confined to a hospital.
