EDDIE FOY, JR.
Printed drawing of a smiling Foy in a hat and glasses, signed "Eddie Foy"
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Barbara/Best/Eddie Foy". B/w, 5x7 overall, image 4½x5½ (one surface). Photograph of an illustration by unknown artist. Dated (unknown hand) on verso: "October 11th, 1948". Eddie Foy, Jr. (1905-1983), the second youngest member of "The Seven Little Foys", is the family member who is best remembered for his screen performances, although his sister, Mary Foy (1901-1987), also appeared in films during the 1920s and 1930s. His father, Eddie Foy, Sr. (1856-1928) had incorporated his offspring into his vaudeville act following the death of his wife, and Eddie, Jr., a dead ringer for his famous dad, accepted an offer from Broadway impersario Florenz Ziegfeld to begin a solo career in 1929. Foy made his film debut that year, and went on to star in a long list of feature films, including starring as his father in four films - Frontier Marshal (1939), Lillian Russell (1940), Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942) and Wilson (1944) - and in a teleplay on Bob Hope Presents the Chrysler Theatre (1964). In addition to his films, Foy appeared in a number of made-for-TV movies and guest starred on both variety shows and in series. The multitalented actor and song and dance man was nominated for the 1958 Tony Award as Best Actor (Musical) for Rumple. He had previously appeared on Broadway in The Pajama Game (1954), recreating his role for the 1957 film version. Lightly creased at blank margins and corners, lightly soiled at upper right blank corner. Fine condition.
