Kanan Awni

Kanan Awni had a very brief "career" in movies and tv during the early 1960s, playing characters in usually uncredited roles. One of those such characters was in the 1963 feature "The Three Stooges Go Around the World in a Daze".

Mr. Awni (born in Baghdad, Irag), a graduate of USC, was a petroleum engineer, an occupation which provided a much higher, and more stable income, than playing small roles in movies. In 1963, he married actress Erin O'Brien.

Currently, Mr. Awni is the owner of an online pet food/supplies business, Dogs-rrrr-Us.

This is the most recent addition to my collection of autographed photos. Thanks to Frank Reighter for obtaining it for me.
