MICHAEL TODD

Vintage signature in black fountain pen on a 5×4 white page. Fine condition, with a somewhat rushed exemplar. This signature was part of the John Verzi collection, but is one of the autographs that he acquired from another collector. Michael Todd is best remembered as the producer of Around te World In 80 Days (1956), which won an Oscar for Best Picture, and for his pioneering efforts in the promotion of wide-screen technology. The third of Elizabeth Taylor’s husbands, he died in the crash of his private airplane one year after his marriage to Taylor.
