Chicago Showbill from Hold Onto Your Hats, starring and signed by Jolson and with his face on the cover in blue-and-white
Show bill signed "Al Jolson" in blue ink. 20 pages including covers, 6x9¼. This is from the Grand Opera House performance of Hold Onto Your Hats, which starred Jolson and began its Chicago run on Jul 15, 1940. It eventually moved to the Shubert Theatre in New York City, where it ran for 158 performances between Sept. 11, 1940 and Feb. 1, 1941. Hold Onto Your Hats was Jolson's last appearance on Broadway. Former synagogue singer and successful black-faced café and vaudeville entertainer Jolson (1886-1950, born Asa Yoelson in Seredzius, Russia, now Lithuania), starred in the first talking picture, Warner Brothers' The Jazz Singer, in 1927. He also starred in Swanee River (1940), appeared as himself in Hollywood Cavalcade (1939) and did the voice over for The Jolson Story (1946). Lightly toned, scuffed, soiled, stained and creased. Cup or bottle stain in upper left corner. Signature is faint but legible. Otherwise in fine condition.
