AMOS 'N' ANDY AUTOGRAPH

amos n andy photo.jpg

Amos 'n' Andy was a situation comedy popular in the United States from the 1920s through the 1950s. The show began as one of the first radio comedy serials, written and voiced by Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll and originating from station WMAQ in Chicago, Illinois. After the series was first broadcast in 1928, it grew in popularity and became a huge influence on the radio serials that followed. Amos 'n' Andy creators Gosden and Correll were white actors familiar with minstrel traditions. They met in Durham, North Carolina in 1920, and by the fall of 1925, they were performing nightly song-and-patter routines on the Chicago Tribune's station WGN.  Their new series, Sam 'n' Henry, began January 12, 1926, fascinating radio listeners throughout the Midwest. That series became popular enough that in late 1927 Gosden and Correll requested that it be distributed to other stations on phonograph records in a "chainless chain" concept that would have been the first use of radio syndication as we know it today.  When WGN rejected the idea, Gosden and Correll quit the show and the station that December. Contractually, their characters belonged to WGN, so when Gosden and Correll left WGN, they performed in personal appearances but could not use the character names from the radio show.  Amos 'n' Andy began March 19, 1928, on WMAQ, and prior to airing each program they recorded their show on 78 rpm disks at Marsh Laboratories, Orlando R. Marsh, owner. Initially, Gosden and Correll portrayed all the male roles. Between the two, they voiced over 170 distinct characterizations in the show's first decade. With the episodic drama and suspense heightened by cliffhanger endings, Amos 'n' Andy reached an ever-expanding radio audience. It was one of the earliest success stories of radio syndication, and at least 70 stations besides WMAQ carried the program using prerecorded records.

BILL ROBINSON AUTOGRAPHED PHOTO

bill-robison-autographed-ph.jpg

Bill "Bojangles" Robinson was born May 25, 1878 – died November 25, 1949. Robinson was a pioneer and pre-eminent African-American tap dance performer. Born in Richmond, Virginia on May 25, 1878, to Maxwell Robinson, a machine-shop worker, and Maria Robinson, a choir singer, Bill Robinson was brought up by his grandmother after the death of his parents when he was still a baby.  In 1891, at the ripe age of 12, he joined a traveling company in The South Before the War, and in 1905 worked with George Cooper as a vaudeville team. He gained great success as a nightclub and musical comedy performer, and during the next 25 years became one of the toasts of Broadway. Not until he was 50 did he dance for white audiences, having devoted his early career exclusively to appearances on the black theater circuit. The publicity that gradually came to surround him included the creation of his famous "stair dance" (which he claimed to have invented on the spur of the moment when he was receiving some honor--he could never remember exactly what-- from the King of England. The King was standing at the top of a flight of stairs, and Bojangles' feet just danced up to be honored), his successful gambling exploits, his bow ties of multiple colors, his prodigious charity, his ability to run backward (he set a world's record of 8.2 seconds for the 75-yard backward dash) and to consume ice-cream by the quart, his argot--most notably the neologism copacetic--and such stunts as dancing down Broadway in 1939 from Columbus Circle to 44th St. in celebration of his 61st birthday.

EMMETT KELLY AUTOGRAPHED FIRST DAY COVER

Emmett Kelly image.jpg

Emmett Leo Kelly was born December 9, 1898 – died March 28, 1979. Kelly a native of Sedan, Kansas, was an American circus performer, who created the memorable clown figure "Weary Willie," based on the hobos of the Depression era. Kelly began his career as a trapeze artist. By 1923, Emmett Kelly was working his trapeze act with John Robinson's circus when he met and married Eva Moore, another circus trapeze artist. They later performed together as the "Aerial Kellys" with Emmett still performing occasionally as a white face clown. He started working as a clown full-time in 1931, and it was only after years of attempting to persuade the management that he was able to switch from a white face clown to the hobo clown that he had sketched ten years earlier while working at an art firm. "Weary Willie" was a tragic figure: a clown, who could usually be seen sweeping up the circus rings after the other performers. He tried but failed to sweep up the pool of light of a spotlight. His routine was revolutionary at the time: traditionally, clowns wore white face and performed slapstick stunts intended to make people laugh. Kelly did perform stunts too—one of his most famous acts was trying to crack a peanut with a sledgehammer—but as a tramp, he also appealed to the sympathy of his audience. From 1942–1956 Kelly performed with the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, where he was a major attraction, though he took the 1956 season off to perform as the mascot for the Brooklyn Dodgers baseball team. He also landed a number of Broadway and film roles, including the role of "Willie" in Cecil B. DeMille's The Greatest Show on Earth (1952). He also appeared in the Bertram Mills Circus. Kelly was a Mystery Guest on the March 11, 1956 broadcast of What's My Line? and answered the panelists' questions with grunts rather than speaking yes or no. When the round was over, panelist Arlene Francis mentioned that Kelly was not allowed to speak while in makeup. Kelly is depicted in a famous photograph, still in full clown make-up and costume, trying to extinguish the flames of the devastating Hartford Circus Fire that struck the Circus on July 6, 1944, and killed 167 people during the afternoon performance in Hartford, Connecticut, according to eyewitnesses, it was one of few times in which he was seen crying. Emmett Kelly died at the age of 80 of a heart attack on March 28, 1979, at his home in Sarasota, Florida. He is buried in the Rest Haven Memorial Park, in Lafayette, Indiana.

ED WYNN AUTOGRAPHED PHOTO

ed-wynn-autographed-photo.jpg

Ed Wynn was born November 9, 1886 - died June 19, 1966.  Wynn was a popular American comedian and actor. The distinctive giggly wavering voice which Wynn created for his "Perfect Fool" character remains much imitated, especially by voice actors of animated cartoons. Hanna-Barbera's Wally Gator's voice is probably the nearest to an exact impersonation of the Perfect Fool. Born Isaiah Edwin Leopold in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he ran away from home in his teens and eventually adapted his middle name "Edwin" into his new stage name, "Ed Wynn", to save his family the embarrassment of having a low comedian as a relative. In his youth, Wynn worked as an onstage assistant to W. C. Fields. Fields caught him "mugging" for the audience during his "Pool Room" routine and knocked him unconscious with his cue. Wynn became a headliner in vaudeville in the early-1910s, and was a star of the Ziegfeld Follies starting in 1914. He was best known as a comedian, billed as The Perfect Fool (and starring in a musical revue of that name on Broadway in 1921).  Wynn also wrote, directed, and produced many shows.  In the late-1940s and early-1950s, he hosted a television show, and won an Emmy Award in 1949. After the end of his television show, Wynn reluctantly began a career as a dramatic actor in television and movies.  Requiem established Wynn as serious dramatic actor who could easily hold his own with the best. His role in The Diary of Anne Frank won him an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor in 1959. Also in 1959, Wynn appeared on Serling's TV series The Twilight Zone in "One for the Angels". Serling, a longtime admirer, had written that and another episode especially for him, and Wynn later starred in the episode "Ninety Years Without Slumbering". 

For the rest of his life, Ed skillfully moved between comic and dramatic roles. He appeared in feature films and anthology television, endearing himself to new generations of fans. Wynn provided the voice of the Mad Hatter in Walt Disney's film, Alice in Wonderland and appeared as the Fairy Godfather in Jerry Lewis' Cinderfella. In the movie, That Darn Cat!(1965) Ed played Mr. Hofstedder, the watch jeweler. One of his best-known performances during later years was as "Uncle Albert" in Mary Poppins. In addition to Disney films, Wynn was a popular character in the Disneyland production The Golden Horseshoe Review. The last movie that he appeared in was The Gnome-Mobile (1967) in which he plays the character Rufus. Ed Wynn died June 19, 1966 in Beverly Hills, California of throat cancer, aged 79.

LARRY WEEKS JUGGLING STAR PHOTOGRAPHS

larry-weeks-presenting-phot.jpg

Larry Weeks was born September 24, 1919 in Salem, Massachusetts. Irving Berlin discovered Weeks performing at one of the Fort Monmouth's Camp Shows, and a few weeks (no pun) later, he was called to Camp Upton and then transferred to the "This is the Army" detachment, where he worked out the Juggling routine built around "Kitchen Police" - the delicate Army term for potato peelers, dish washers and general cleaner-uppers. In the act, instead of peeling potatoes, Cpl. Weeks juggles them when the Mess Sergeant isn't looking. He detaches the mopstick from the top and twirls it like a Drum Major, and his innocent looking egg-beater suddenly becomes Indian Clubs. Since the inception of "TITA" - Larry has presented his act in 17 countries to 1 ,600,000 spectators in 825 shows traveling over 50,000 miles to do so.

JACK PEARL & CLIFF HALL AUTOGRAPHS

180px-JackPearl3.jpg

Jack Pearl, born Jack Perlman was born October 29, 1894 in New York City, died December 25, 1984 in New York City. Pearl was a vaudeville performer and a star of early radio. He portrayed a character he created, Baron Munchausen, very loosely based on the Baron Munchausen literary character. As the Baron, Pearl would tell far-fetched stories with a comic German accent. When the straight man (originally Ben Bard, but later Cliff Hall) expressed skepticism, the Baron replied with his single tagline and punchline: "Vass you dere, Sharlie?" This catch phrase soon became part of the national lexicon. Typical of the dialogue: Hall: You seem to be effervescent tonight. Munchausen: Haff you effer seen me ven I effer vasn't? Pearl played this character and others in musical revues of the 1920s and 1930s: The Dancing Girl (1923), Topics of 1923 (1923-1924), A Night in Paris (1926), Artists and Models (1927-1928), Pleasure Bound (1929), International Review (1930), Ziegfeld Follies of 1931, Pardon My English (1923) and All for All (1943). The success of his first radio series brought him to the attention of MGM. He starred as his character in one feature film, Meet the Baron (1933) with Jimmy Durante, Edna Mae Oliver, Zasu Pitts and the Three Stooges. He also appears in Ben Bard and Jack Pearl, a 1926 filming of their vaudevile act, and Hollywood Party (1934). With the cancellation of his second radio series, Pearl found himself struggling for work. He continued in radio with shows like, Jack and Cliff (1948) and The Baron and the Bee (1952), a quiz show, but he never recaptured his mid-1930s fame. Ben Bard and Jack PearlIn 1934 a book, Jack Pearl as Detective Baron Munchausen, was published as a juvenile novel based on his radio scripts. He received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his radio work.

At one point he had his own nightclub in Hanover Square, and also performed on London's West End. In the 1960s he was among England's highest-paid entertainers.  In 1982 he played Dolly Levi in the famous musical Hello, Dolly!, and he is still a regular performer in traditional Christmas pantomime shows in Britain.  He was made an OBE in the 2002 Queen's Birthday Honours List. LaRue appeared in Every Day's a Holiday, The Frankie Howerd Show, Our Miss Fred, Twiggs, Decidedly Dusty, Entertainment Express, Blackpool Bonanza and the BBC Play of the Month. He made a guest appearance in the Mr. Bean episode, Mr. Bean in Room 426 in 1993.  After La Rue suffered a mild stroke in 2006, all of his planned performances were cancelled.
