Black and white magazine photograph of Don Wilson looking up.
Magazine Photograph signed: "'It Can't Be'/Don Wilson". B/w, 7½x10¼. On verso is the masthead for "Radio Guide", December 24, 1938 issue. American radio announcer and occasional actor Don Wilson (1900-1982) is best remembered as the announcer on radio's popular comedy series, The Jack Benny Program (1934-1958), on which he served as both the announcer and as a comic foil for Benny and the other cast members. At six feet tall and over 200 pounds, Wilson's weight was often the butt of jokes. The outrageous gags over his weight had to be modified when Wilson next appeared on Benny's TV series (1950-1965) as the medium didn't lend itself well to exaggeration. Wilson was also the announcer for several other radio comedy or variety shows, including Fanny Brice's, Baby Snooks, and he was a regular on the radio show, Glamour Manor. After making his film debut in 1932 (Million Dollar Legs), Wilson also appeared in several features, including Niagara (1953). Often cast as an announcer, he also narrated the 1938 film, Ferdinand the Bull, and Wilson would later appear on several TV series, making his last appearances on two episodes of Batman in 1966. Lightly creased with folds, lower horizontal fold at the upper loop of the "D" in Don and the lower portion of the "W" of Wilson. Scuffed at upper left background, light stain at lower right portion. Mounting remnants and glue stains on verso lightly show through at perimeter. Worn at left edge. Overall, fair condition.
