The silent-film villain signs name for a friend in black ink
Inscribed photograph signed: "To Sandy, the best Mgr. M.C. foot sticker out/ Band leader, car driver, costumer, and good/ old skate I have ever known/ Edgar" in black ink. Sepia, 8x10. Edgar Kennedy (1890-1948) broke into silent films in 1914, often cast as a villain in Mack Sennett comedies. He later excelled in other comic roles, co-starring with Laurel and Hardy, Our Gang and, in his last picture (Unfaithfully Yours, 1948) Doris Day. He made over 100 two-reelers for RKO studios, known collectively as his "Mr. Average Man" comedies. In these he played the long-suffering husband, a prototype of so many future TV sitcoms. Kennedy died of throat cancer one day before a Hollywood testimonial dinner was scheduled in his honor. Creased throughout. Slightly worn and soiled. Ink stamp on verso. Pencil notes on verso in unknown hand. Tape affixed in bottom left corner. Corners creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
