The crooning 1940s actor poses for candid 4x6 photograph, signs his name in blue ink
Inscribed photograph signed: "To Clint -/ Love/ Freddie/ Stewart" in blue ink. Color, 4x6. Actor and singer Freddie Stewart (1925-2000) began his career as a musical entertainer after the war, getting a job at a Catskills resort and moving up as a tenor vocalist in Clyde McCoy's Orchestra, and eventually his own radio show "Freddie Stewart Sings" in New York. He moved to Hollywood in the late 1940s and began appearing on shows such as She's A Sweetheart (1944), Stewart joined Tommy Doresey's Orchestra hoping to find success similar to Frank Sinatra. It was when he signed with the small "Poverty Row" studio that Stewart was given an eight-film contract of bobbysoxer musicals where the actors (mostly in their late 20s) were billed as teenagers; these included Junior Prom (1946) and Music Man (1948) and were popular for their breezy, escapist nature. He had little film success after that and spent the rest of his life perform, night-club owning, and touring around the world. Corners rounded. Ink notes on verso in unknown hand. Otherwise, fine condition.
