GEORGE "FOGHORN" WINSLOW, CO-SIGNED BY ART LINKLETTER Rare signature by the child actor, accompanied by a postcard signed by Linkletter, who gave "Foghorn" his first opportunity Two items: 1) Photograph signed: "George Winslow". B/w, 5¼x7 Youthful image. 2) Typed Note signed: "Art", 5½x3½ postcard promoting Art Linkletter's People Are Funny TV and radio show. Typed text: "I'm very sorry indeed, but we don't have a picture of George Winslow." The card is taped to the back of Winslow's photo. GEORGE WINSLOW (1946-2015), a child actor with fine comic skills and a deep bass voice, made his first TV appearance on Art Linkletter's program. He was such a hit that Linkletter, contrary to his usual policy, brought Winslow back for about 20 shows. Cary Grant saw one of these, and wanted Winslow for his movie Room for One More (1952). This was the first of 11 film appearances for the boy, soon called "Foghorn," who was soon upstaging Grant (again in Monkey Business) and even Marilyn Monroe (in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, 1953). He made several appearances on TV sitcoms, including Ozzie and Harriet. Winslow did not continue acting as an adult, reverting to his birth name of Wentzlaff and becoming a photographer. In later years he shunned publicity of all sorts, making his autograph a rare one. Radio broadcaster, television personality and author ART LINKLETTER (1912-2010), hosted daytime variety shows on CBS-TV from 1952-1969. The candid, often surprising responses from his interviews with youngsters on the show led to a series of Kids Say the Darndest Things books. He also hosted Inside Beverly Hills (1955) and The Art Linkletter Show (1963). More recently, Linkletter returned to television in a 1998 production of Kids Say the Darndest Things, which he co-hosted with fellow funnyman Bill Cosby.
