Sepia publicity photograph of Clyde Beatty in a cage with two lions. Inscribed to The Three Stooges, Shemp Howard and his wife Babe!
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To/My Friends/Shemp and Babe/Best wishes/Clyde Beatty". Sepia, 10x8. Lion tamer and animal trainer Clyde Beatty (1903-1965) is best remembered for his "fighting act" -- in which he entered a cage of snarling beasts armed only with a bullwhip and a pistol strapped to his hip. By the 1930s, Beatty owned outright or allowed his name to be used by different circuses for which he performed. Beatty was also popular in feature films during the 1930s-1950s. He inscribed this photograph to Shemp Howard, his co-star in the 1949 Abbott & Costello film, Africa Screams. Fine condition.
