Autograph note signed: "To Kaye/My Best/Gil/Lamb", 4¼x2¾ card with 1x1¾ black and white newspaper photograph attaches at upper left (two surfaces). GilLamb (1904-1995) was an American comedian and actor with 60 movie and TV shows to his credit. Rubber-limbed and faced, Lamb got his show biz start as a vaudevillian in the 1930s, entertaining audiences as an eccentric actor and an act, his most famous, where he pretended to swallow a harmonica. He got his start in movies in 1935's Roof Tops of Manhattan. His roles included support roles and specialty players in Paramount musicals like The Fleet's In (1942) and Rainbow Island (1946) and as Humphrey Pennyworth in a series of films based on the Joe Palooka comic strip - a puzzling choice, as Pennyworth was obese in the strip. Lamb starred in a series of two-reel comedies at RKO Radio between 1949 to 1952, then returned to radio, with guest starring roles in TV shows and un-credited cameo appearances in Disney productions. He also hosted the TV variety show Window on the World (1949). Fine condition.
