Chad Everett original snapshots

April 24, 2020

I had the good fortune to win an ebay auction recently for four original snapshots of Chad Everett! The seller didn't provide any information about where the photographs came from, but I'm wondering if they belonged to someone who knew him since the photo with Connie Stevens is inscribed on the back simply "Chad and Connie S."

There was some definite reddening of the tones, and some dust and spots that I retouched in photoshop. The first photo below is my absolute favorite. I'm crossing the line here that separates collector from fangirl, but... that hair curl!

You can click on the photos to see and download larger versions.

If anyone has any information about the photos please let me know! I'd love to know when the photo with Connie Stevens was taken. I know that they worked together on five episodes of Hawaiian Eye in the early 1960s, so I'm curious if the studio paired them up for an event to try to raise his star a bit. 

While researching I found this page from the 2011 Hollywood Media Professionals luncheon that honored Chad Everett. If you scroll down you can see a few photos of him reunited with Connie Stevens just a little over a year before he passed away in July of 2012.

Wow, what a great find!
What are your favourite films of his? I've never watched any of his movies before. :)

Thanks, Jess! My favorites are Made in Paris, First to Fight, and Return of the Gunfighter. He's also really good in the tv show Medical Center (which, sadly, isn't streaming anywhere)
