Sale Price $510.00
Youthful image, a vintage photo inscribed in person to collector Saul Goodman
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Saul/Best wishes/Andy Devine". B/w, 8x10. Collector's ink stamp on verso dates signature: July 5, 1939. Andy Devine (1905-1977, born Jeremiah Schwartz), appeared in silent films, but was afraid his rasping voice, the result of a childhood injury, would exclude him from the talkies. On the contrary, it helped make him the quintessential comic sidekick, first in films to Richard Arlen (1939-1941) and Roy Rogers (late 1940s), then on TV to Guy Madison's Wild Bill Hickock (1951-1958), remembered for his line, "Hey, Wild Bill! Wait for me." He hosted a popular children's TV program in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Devine was also a regular on Jack Benny's radio show from 1937. Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. Signature lightly haloed. Minor background spots. Crease at upper edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
