Original autographs and inscriptions (most on photos) as well as photos with Jeff’s signature printed on them are shown below.
The first two images are front and back of a promotional postcard for “The Last Hurrah”, signed by Jeff at the world premiere for the film at Loew’s Orpheum Theater in Boston, MA, on Oct. 22, 1958. Hundreds of his fans turned out to greet him.
The second two images are from the premiere: (1) Jeff and his wife Dusty arriving; (2) Jeff at the premiere. It looks like he was busy mopping his brow with his handkerchief in both photos!
