SANBORN (1899-1961) was an American comedian, vaudeville performer and musician who was once part of Ted Healy's comedy troupe Ted Healy and his Southern Gentlemen. Fans of the Three Stooges will probably recognize the Southern Gentlemen, as it also included Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Shemp Howard among its players. However, Sanborn appeared in only one movie with the future Stooges, 1930's Soup to Nuts, which included the Sanborn song Tears. He left the troupe after that, reportedly because he didn't want to become known as a "Healyite". It didn't do anything for Sanborn's career, though; he had only six movie credits in the 1930s and 1940s and three Broadway appearances, all of them revues, in 1929, 1940 and 1942. He also had one TV appearance in 1950 on The Ed Wynn Show. BAXTER (1909-1996), born Feodora Forde in Bremen, Germany, spent most of her career on the British stage and in British films. She came to Hollywood in the mid-1930s, starring in two films, We Live Again (1934) and Enchanted April (1935), and becoming romantically involved with actor Ronald Colman. Baxter, who hated American life, returned to London to resume her film career and make periodic forays into television. She is perhaps best known on the small screen as a semi-regular on the acclaimed Upstairs/Downstairs. Lightly soiled. Jagged at right edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
