(DECEASED) ORIGINAL Autograph 8 x 10 STUDIO PROMO PHOTO EXCELLENT SIGNATURE QUALITY AUTHENTICATED BY JSA (JAMES SPENCE AUTHENTICATION) William Scott Elam, known as Jack Elam (November 13, 1920 - October 20, 2003), was an American film and television actor best known for his numerous roles as villains in Western films and, later in his career, comedies (sometimes spoofing his villainous image). His most distinguishing physical quality was the iris of his left eye, which was skewed to the outside, making him look unnaturally wall-eyed (the opposite of cross-eyed). Before his career in acting, he took several jobs in finance and served two years in the United States Navy during World War II. Elam played in 73 movies, and made an appearance in 41 television series. His best known works consist of Once Upon A Time In The West, High Noon and the television program, The Twilight Zone. Jack Elam died in 2003 of congestive heart failure, leaving behind two daughters and one son. *Slight creases on photo.
