MIKE CONNORS AUTOGRAPH


Mike Connors was born August 15, 1925. Mike Connors is a Golden Globe-winning American actor best known for playing Joe Mannix in the long-running detective television series, Mannix. Before that, he had played a crime-fighting investigator, wielding a .38 handgun hidden in his back, in the TV series Tightrope. Born Krikor Ohanian in Fresno, California, he graduated from UCLA where he was a member of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity. An avid basketball player who was nicknamed “Touch” by his teammates, he is credited in his early films, such as Island in the Sky (1953), Swamp Women, a.k.a. Swamp Diamonds, Five Guns West (1955), and Flesh and the Spur (1957) as Touch Connors. In 1956, still billed as Touch Connors, he played an Amalekite herder in Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments starring Charlton Heston. His three TV series were CBS’s Tightrope (September 8, 1959–September 13, 1960), CBS’s Mannix (September 16, 1967–August 27, 1975) and ABC’s Today’s F.B.I. (October 25, 1981–August 14, 1982). His TV series Tightrope were very popular in Mexico during the early 60s, so the local recording company Discos Orfeon released a 45 rpm single of Connors sung in Spanish language. He currently lives in Encino, California. Original Mike Connors Autograph, signed on a 3 x 5 inch Index Card. Written: To Chuck Best Wishes Mike Connors.
