Knight (1901-1976, born John Forest Knight in Fairmont, West Virginia) was a comedic sidekick in Westerns of the 1930s and 1940s, usually with Johnny Mack Brown and Tex Ritter. Knight got his start in vaudeville and once even led his own band. He broke into films with an un-credited role in Night Parade (1929), the first of his over 190 movies and TV shows. Some of his more memorable performances include Mae West's bumpkin cousin in My Little Chickadee and a rare dramatic role as Tater in The Trail of the Lonesome Pine (1936). He made the jump to TV in 1950, where he continued to play sidekicks, including Sagebrush on The Gene Autry Show (1950-1951) and Private Fuzzy Knight in Buster Crabbe's Captain Gallant of the Foreign Legion (1955-1957). Lightly toned, soiled, creased and bowed. Parts of signature have low contrast, but are legible. Errors in negative were reproduced in photo. Marks near right edge. Top and bottom edges are nicked. Rounded and worn corners. Otherwise in fine condition.
