Jonathan Harris - 'Dr. Smith' on "Lost in Space"

Jonathan Harris was a character actor with many movie and tv credits before I noticed him in the 1960s sci-fi tv series "Lost in Space", in which he played the comedic role of Dr. Zachary Smith. Since that series, I looked forward to any of his guest appearances on many other tv shows right into the 1990s.

In 1982, I sent him a letter requesting an autographed photo, to his home in Encino, California, and he sent this photo within two weeks. He signed it using some kind of white ink, which fortunately didn't smudge as such inks are likely to do.
