GENE AUSTIN
The crooner pens a note on the back of a meal ticket
Autograph Note Signed: "To Audrey/a pretty Girl/Sincerely/Gene Austin", 3½x2½ card. Pencil date (unknown hand) in lower right corner: "1935." Printed on verso is a printed Thank You from the Trocadero French Grill and a price total of $1.20. American singer, songwriter and pianist Gene Austin (1900-1972), one of the first "crooners," ran away from home and joined a vaudeville act at age 15. After military service in France and Mexico during World War I, he became one of the nation's most popular voices of the 1920s, selling 80 million records (a total unmatched by any artist for 40 years). He wrote the popular standards "When My Sugar Walks Down the Street" and "Why Do You Do Me Like You Do?" Hit songs he didn't write but turned into big hits included "Bye Bye Blackbird" and "My Blue Heaven." The latter record from 1928 sold over 5 million copies, a total unmatched until Bing Crosby's "White Christmas." Austin appeared in three films with his friend Mae West. Pencil light but legible. Mounting remnants on verso (no show-through). Fine condition.
