Signed on opposites sides of an album leaf, with two news photos affixed below Brisson's signature
Autograph Sentiment signed: "Best Wishes/Carl Brisson" and, on verso, "Turner Layton", 6½x5¼ album leaf. Two magazine photographs of Brisson, b/w, 1x1½ and 2½x3, affixed at lower right margin. Multitalented entertainer CARL BRISSON (1893-1958), born Carl Pederson in Copenhagen, Denmark, was a former professional boxer, dancer, nightclub singer and veteran of the London stage (from 1923) before making his first major film, Alfred Hitchcock's The Ring, in 1927. He displayed his fine tenor voice when he introduced the standard, "Cocktails for Two", in the 1934 film, Murder at the Vanities. Brisson, who made his last film, Ship Cafe, in 1935, was the father of Tony Award-winning theatrical producer Frederick Brisson - the husband of Rosalind Russell from October 25, 1941 until her death on November 28, 1976. Although TURNER LAYTON (1894-1978) appeared in two films (1936, 1937), he is best known as the composer of "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans" and "After You've Gone". The former song, introduced in Mirrors in 1934, has been heard in two other films, Somebody Loves Me (1952) and Bix (1981); the latter song, introduced in Boom Town (1940), was part of the sound track of For Me and My Gal (1942), Sweet and Lowdown (1999), The Cat's Meow (2001) and The Aviator (2004). Lightly creased. Lightly soiled, light rectangular stain at the "Carl" and "B" of Brisson's signature and 1 word of inscription. Light show through of photograph mounting glue on verso, nicking the flourish of Layton's signature. Irregular right edge (with binding nicks) from removal from bound book.
