Lot 441: Dustin Hoffman High School Yearbook
Dustin Hoffman and Johnnie Cochrane Senior Yearbook (with George Takei as a Junior) 1955 Los Angeles High School, Los Angeles, CA. Three stars in their respective "universes" show up in this yearbook, which is in excellent condition. There is no moisture damage, no cutouts, no torn or missing pages. The binding is a little loose and there is some wear to the corners of the cover; there are quite a few inscriptions, but mostly on the inside covers and end pages. Dustin Hoffman (called "Dusty" in school) appears in his posed individual Senior head photo, a super shot of him with his tennis doubles partner and in the tennis team shot. One of the handful of dominant actors in our era, Dustin Hoffman has been nominated SEVEN times as best actor in a leading role within a 30 year span, and has won twice! Noted attorney Johnnie Cochrane shows up as a Senior with a sharp, posed individual head photo, and also appears in a Student Council photo in which he is only one person removed from George Takei (who is a Junior in this book and appears, quite clearly, in this photo and also in two other shots).
