Ted White Autograph from 1960!

Obviously getting Ted White's (Friday the 13th: Part IV) signature now is quite easy. But when I first started collecting it took me about 4 years of leads to even find his address to write to him and ask for one. Then it took me 3 or 4 tries to have him respond and when he did in 2003 I was ecstatic  Ted had not yet stepped into the spotlight that he well deserved and was still considered an actor who was distancing himself.

This autograph is dated 1960 and is definitely a piece of history. In 1960 Ted did the John Wayne movie The Alamo and a year before in 1959 he did Rio Bravo-- also with Wayne. A great story between Ted and John Wayne is told on the Friday the 13th Franchise site, told by his son Michael.

Here is an amazing photo of Ted beside the Duke, himself.
