Bold signature and inscription, “To John/With/Best Regards/James/Shigeta,” in blue fountain pen on a 6×4 white index card. Very fine condition, with a small magazine photograph affixed at the bottom right corner. Undated on the reverse side, but likely early 1960s. John Verzi collection. Unsuccessfully groomed as a leading man early in his career, James Shigeta was for a brief time Hllywood’s biggest East Asian star. He soon reverted to character roles, appearing in films such as Die Hard (1988) and scores of television series during a career that spanned five decades.
