EDWARD EVERETT HORTON. Manuscript Document signed: "Edward Everett Horton/Mar - 4 - 42" in ink, 1p, 7x2¾, affixed to 8½x11sheet. No place. Horton signs a pencil statement (unknown hand): "This authorizes my secretary, Pam Vandervoort, to pick up my checks." In red pencil across the signature is written "Cancelled". Below Horton's signature is added the pencil note "in 'Magnificent Jerk'". Often mistaken for an Englishman, Brooklyn-born Edward Everett Horton (1886-1970) began his film career in silent movies. As manager of Los Angeles' Majestic Theater in the late 1920s, he helped train several silent film leading men to use their voices properly in stage work, preparing them for talking pictures. Horton played supporting roles in the 1930s and 1940s, most notably in the Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers musicals at RKO. During this period, he also became a radio actor. Horton's voice was heard as the narrator of the "Fractured Fairy Tales" segment on the ABC cartoon series, Rocky and His Friends (1959-1961), and he starred on ABC's F Troop (1965-1967) as Hekawi Indian tribe medicine man Roaring Chicken. Horton appeared in a 1942 film called The Magnificent Dope, not "Jerk" as written here. Lightly soiled. Staple holes near top, touching 3 letters of document. Mounting adhesive (no show through) near upper and lower edges, but not at left and right edges, those sides loosened from mounting sheet. Overall, fine condition.
