Singing cowboy film star and recording artist Tex Ritter signed this b/w publicity photograph of him riding his horse White Flash with "A mi Amigo" in 1949
Photograph signed: "A mi Amigo [To my friend]/[drawn lariat]/Tex/Ritter/&/White/Flash/Saguaro/Mtns./1949". B/w, 8¼x10 overall, 7¼x9½ image, one surface. Ritter (1905-1974, born Maurice Woodward Ritter in Marvaul, Texas) was a country music star who also was successful in Westerns. Appearing in 85 films, Ritter starred in Holiday Rhythm in 1950, the year after he signed this photo (he had previously filmed Frontier Fugitives in 1945). Rivaling Gene Autry in popularity at the beginning of his career, Ritter curtailed his filmmaking in the late 1940s, opting to tour in live shows with his horse, White Flash. As a singer, he became a weekly fixture at the Grand Ole Opry. The father of actor John Ritter, he is the only entertainer elected to both the Cowboy Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Lightly creased. Overall, fine condition.
