Inscribed book photograph signed "Hi Serl/Donald/O'Connor". B/w, 6¾x9.

Donald O'Connor (1925-2003) was dancing away as a child in his family's vaudeville act. Remembered as the army private who can't convince anyone that a mule can talk in a series of six Francis the Talking Mule films, he also kept dancing in, among others, Yes Sir, That's My Baby (1949) and, with Bing Crosby, in Anything Goes (1956). For portraying Cosmo Brown in Singin' in the Rain, O'Connor won the 1953 Golden Globe for Best Actor-Musical or Comedy. He also won the 1954 Emmy Award for Best Male Star of a Regular Series for his appearances on The Colgate Comedy Hour. Light show-through from verso (does not touch signature).
