DARREN McGAVIN. Glossy 7×9 black and white half-length publicity portrait, boldly signed in black felt tip ink. Very fine condition. Prolific actor Darren McGavin is best remembered for his role as intrepid crime reporter Carl Kolchak in a 1972 TV film that eventually became a television series, as well as for his appearance in A Christmas Story (1983), one of the most beloved holiday movies ever. Signed photographs are relatively uncommon.
