The majority of the signatures have been removed from the autograph book of Sylvia H of Hertfordshire. Various scenes of the Dirty Dozen were filmed in and around her home village of Gaddesden during the summer of 1966. Most days during the school holidays she (aged 10) and many of her friends just walked short distances to watch the filming on set. She obtained the autographs of Lee Marvin (twice) / Clint Walker (twice) / Al Mancini / Richard Jaeckel / Telly Savalas / Trini Lopez / Jim Brown / Charles Bronson / Ben Carruthers / Tom Busby / Stuart Cooper and John Cassavetes in her autograph book. There are two Trini Lopez signatures supplied as one is on the reverse of Jim Brown. Includes a letter from her detailing in full the history of how the autographs were obtained. All the remaining autographs in this collection have been sourced over-time from UACC Registered Dealers by ourselves.
