BEN TURPIN
Small sepia publicity photograph of Ben Turpin posing with four others on the golf course.
Photograph signed: "Best Wishes/Ben Turpin." Sepia, 6¾x4¾. The silent screen comedian is pictured with four others on the golf course. Photograph by T.A. Wilke. Ben Turpin joined Essanay shortly after the company began operating in 1907, but it wasn't until 1917, when he joined Mack Sennett, that he became a leading comedy star. He enjoyed his greatest success in a series of parodies of hit movies of the period, lampooning famous screen personalities. His films included Uncle Tom Without the Cabin (1919), The Shriek of Araby (1923), The Reel Virginian (1924) and A Harem Knight (1926). He derived much laughter from the contrast between his small size and ludicrous face and the dashing, sophisticated characters he portrayed. Turpin had insured his eyes with Lloyds of London against uncrossing. 1½-inch blank edge at upper right is tattered, else in fine condition.
