BARRY EVANS

Bold signature and inscription, “John/All good wishes/Barry Evans,” in black felt tip ink on a 6×4 yellow index card.  Very fine condition.  A pencil notation on the reverse side indicates that this autograph was obtained in person in May 1975.  John Verzi collection.  The British actor is best known for his appearances in the popular television series, “Doctor in the House,” “Doctor at Large,” and “Mind Your Language.”  He died at age 53 in 1997 of undetermined causes — murder was suspected, but never proven.  Autographed material in virtually any format is quite scarce, as he not only refused to sign in most instances, but was also notoriously rude to fans.
