Description

Rare signed photo of McQueen from The Reivers

One of the most revered actors of his generation, he is remembered for his wild antics and lifestyle and is best remembered for his roles in Papillon, Bullitt, The Thomas Crown Affair, The Sand Pebbles, The Cincinnati Kid, The Great Escape, and The Magnificent Seven. Vintage glossy 8 x 10 photo of McQueen as he appeared in the 1969 film The Reivers, signed and inscribed in black felt tip, "To Ted, Thank you for your help—Steve McQueen." In fine condition. Ted Ashton, a Princeton graduate, began his motion picture career in 1947 in the publicity department at Warner Brothers. He soon became a unit publicist for many of the studio's most successful films for the next 18 years. Among his many credits were Giant, Mister Roberts, Auntie Mame, East of Eden, Calamity Jane, The Green Berets, and Bound for Glory. An exceptional example from a Hollywood legend quite elusive in signed photos!
