Signature: "Benny Baker", "Lyle Talbot", in black ink, 5¼x4½. Stage, screen and television actor BENNY BAKER (1907-1994) began his show business career in Broadway musical comedies before debuting in films in 1934. After appearing in several Paramount musicals, he returned to Broadway, but returned to Hollywood as a character actor. His film credits include The Farmer's Daughter (1940), two Joe Palooka films (1947, 1949), Thunderbirds (1952), No Time for Sergeants (1958), Papa's Delicate Condition (1963), Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number ! (1966), Paint Your Wagon (1969), The Sting II (1983) and 18 Again! (1988, his last film). Baker also made a number of TV movies and appeared as a guest star on a long list of TV shows, from the early anthologies (beginning with Kraft Television Theatre in 1952) to comedies, Westerns and dramas. Some actors would wince at some of the jobs that LYLE TALBOT (1902-1996, born Lisle Henderson in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) took later in his career, but you have to give him credit for this, at least: he kept busy. Talbot piled up a phonebook-sized resume with 300 movies and TV shows between 1932 and 1987, which included roles as Commissioner Gordon in Batman and Robin (1949) and Lex Luthor in Atom Man vs. Superman (1950), both serials. He also had the dubious honor of appearing in not one but two movies by schlock director Ed Wood, Jr.: Glen or Glenda (1953) and the legendary Plan 9 From Outer Space (1956). Talbot had roles in more reputable movies, too. His good looks earned him co-star duties with Ginger Rogers in a number of mysteries in the 1930s (The Thirteenth Guest, 1932; A Shriek in the Night, 1933). As he got older, he became one of Hollywood's busiest villains. Talbot was busy on TV, too, including a recurring role as Joe Randolph on The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet (1956-1966). Talbot was also one of 24 actors to organize the Screen Actors Guild in 1935. Surface creases. Tears on bottom edge. Notches on bottom margins. Lightly soiled. Slightly toned. Ink notes (unknown hand). Otherwise, fine condition.
