Character actor WINNINGER (1884-1969) is probably best remembered today for his numerous film performances in grandfatherly roles, often played with a roguish twinkle in a wandering eye. His career stretched back into the 19th Century. A part of his family's vaudeville act, the Winninger Family Novelty Company, from an early age, he performed at the Chicago World Fair of 1893 before striking out on his own in 1909. He made his Broadway in 1912 and in movies three years later. In all, Winninger appeared in 16 Broadway shows between 1912 and 1951, including the role of Cap'n Andy in the original production (1927-1929) and first revival (1932) of Show Boat (a role he reprised in the 1936 film adaptation) and over 70 movies and TV shows between 1915 and 1960, including Three Smart Girls (1936), Nothing Sacred (1937), Destry Rides Again (1939) and State Fair (1945), and as Charles Farrell's father on TV's The Charles Farrell Show (1956). American actor and dancer SKELLY (1890-1934) left home at 15 to join a circus and did light opera in China and Japan before debuting on Broadway in 1918. He's probably best remembered for his performance as Ralph "Skid" Johnson from the Broadway play Burlesque (1927-1298). He reprised Skid in the 1929 film adaptation The Dance of Life, one of his first movie appearances. All together, he appeared in 11 Broadway productions between 1918 and 1934 and 10 movies between 1928 and 1934 before losing his life in 1934, when a train hit a car that he was riding in. Lightly toned and creased. Impression from another album page, which touches Skelly's signature. Light nicked at top, right and bottom edges and in bottom right corner. Irregular left edge. Lightly creased and worn left corners. Otherwise in fine condition.
