FRANKIE LAINE, FRAN WARREN and ALAN CARNEY
Two musicians and a comedian sign a 5x3 album leaf.
Signatures: "Frankie/Laine", "Fran Warren" in ink and "Alan Carney" and unknown signature in pencil, 5x3. The vocal repertoire of FRANKIE LAINE (1913-2007), born Frank LoVecchio, was diverse: pop, jazz standards, country/western and devotional. His U.S. popularity was at its peak in the 1950s, when he recorded such hits as "Mule Train", "Hey, Good Lookin'", "I Believe", "Midnight Gambler", and the themes for the Westerns High Noon and Rawhide. He remained popular in Europe much longer, touring there with much success. Popular singer FRAN WARREN (born Frances Wolfe in 1926) sang with a number of bands, including those of Randy Brooks, Billy Eckstine (who gave her the stage name of Fran Warren), Charlie Barnet and Claude Thornhill. The replacement vocalist for Kay Starr in Barnet's band, she had her first hit record, "A Sunday Kind of Love", with Thornhill's band in 1947. She had her biggest hit with "I Said My Pajamas (and Put On My Pray'rs)", a duet with Tony Martin that reached No. 3 on the charts. Warren, who had her last chart hit with "It's Anybody's Heart" in 1953, also performed in several musical comedies in the 1950s, and she toured with Harry James' band in the 1960s. ALAN CARNEY (1909-1973), born David Boughal, was an actor and comedian who got his start as a comic dialectician in vaudeville. He made his first film, Convoy, in 1941, and Carney would go on to appear solo in such films as Mr. Lucky (1943) before teaming up with Wally Brown as RKO's answer to Abbott and Costello in 1943. After the team's contract was terminated in 1946, after they made Genius at Work, Carney continued in films and television. He shone in his role as Mayor Dawgmeat in the film adaptation of Li'l Abner (1959), and Carney worked prolifically for the Disney Studios in the 1960s and 1970s, appearing in such films as The Absent-Minded Professor (1961), Son of Flubber (1963), Monkeys, Go Home! (1967), The Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin (1967), Blackbeard's Ghost (1968) and Herbie Rides Again. Slightly creased and soiled. Mounting remnants on verso (minor show through at blank right margin.
