THE BLUE MAX MOVIE STILL – FOKKER TRIPLANE PHOTOGRAPH – AUTOGRAPHED AND PERSONALIZED TO “DER RITTMEISTER” (KEN GREENFIELD).
This photograph has hung behind my desk for years. It features the Fokker Triplane flown by the star of The Blue Max, George Peppard. He portrayed its antihero, the ruthless Bruno Stachel. The photograph shows Peppard leaping from his airplane after completing the mission that would win him the PLM. The photograph has been professionally framed and is double-matted. The photograph is recognized for being from 20th Century Fox and identified as The Blue Max at the bottom. Also at the left bottom is an inscription to me “To Ken Greenfield Donnerwetter (I’m outta here!) On the right it reads “Best Wishes Always Jack Hunter.” The frame’s reverse sports a further inscription “To my Friend Ken Greenfield Merry Christmas 1996. All the best Sincerely Terry”
As I thin out my personal collection, it is time to share this with another collector who will be as inspired as I was by both The Blue Max and Jack Hunter.
The framed presentation measures 15” x 12.”
The photograph measures 9.5” x 7.”
