Consents to the use of his name in the movie Incident
Documentary Letter signed: "Andy Devine", 1 page, 8½x11. Los Angeles, California, 1948. Devine grants permission for the use of his name in a film tentatively titled Incident. The document quotes from the projected script, this dialogue spoken by 'Joe': "Had a peculiar voice, though, a gravel voice like that movie guy ... [Ellipses in original.] Andy Devine. I'd recognize him by that, if I ever heard it again." 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. Incident was released in 1948, with Warren Douglas in the role of Joe Downey. Creased with multiple mailing folds. Top edge lightly frayed and toned. Binding holes at top edge. Paper residue from unknown document on face (not effecting signature). Otherwise, fine condition.
