CHARLES STARRETT
Western star Charles Starrett drew this small ink caricature of himself in a Stetson cowboy hat (apparently after some prodding) in Borrego Springs, California in 1980. Includes a self-critique of his self-caricature: "Is'nt [sic] funny - the Stetson dose [sic] not seem to fit!"
Self-caricature signed "Your teacher -/Bob Hemminger - said/give it a try!/Here goes for you - /Is'nt [sic] funny -/the Stetson dose [sic]/not seem to fit!/from your friend who rode/the Hollywood Range/Charles 'Durango' Starrett". B/w, 2x2¼ caricature on a 5¾x8¼ sheet of "Roadrunners Mail Call" stationery. Borrego Springs, California, March 8, 1980. Starrett (1903-1986, born in Athol, Massachusetts) is best known for his portrayal of "The Durango Kid" in a string of B-westerns in the 1940s and early 1950s. He spent his college years playing football for Dartmouth, and upon graduation chose acting as his profession. After a few years of stage work and vaudeville, Starrett signed with Paramount in 1930 but never found the breakthrough role he needed to be a star at the studio. In the mid-1930s, Starrett signed a long-term contract with Columbia and starred in a multitude of B westerns for the studio. But his most famous part, as the Durango Kid, was the role that both made and broke his film career. Return of the Durango Kid (1945), kicked off a series of nearly 70 Durango Kid films. But in the early 1950s, as the B-western faded into the horizon, Starrett retired from the screen. He passed away in 1986 at the age of 82. Lightly toned and creased, otherwise in fine condition.
