HARRY WIERE
Signed manuscript copy of Harry Wiere's autobiography of the comedy trio The Wiere Brothers, Violins and Derby Hats, bound in a green three-ring binder. With numerous notations in Wiere's hand.
Biography signed "Harry Wiere" on front cover in black ink and "Harry Wiere" in blue ink on final page. With numerous notations in Wiere's hand in blue ink and lead pencil notations in unknown hand. 218 pages, 9¾x11¼, singled-sided sheets, bound in a green three-ring binder. Written on cover in Wiere's hand: "Same to Brenda Tell/Autobiography/Title./Violins and Derby Hats/Copy/By/Harry V. Wiere/(Wiere Bros)". Includes an index and bibliography and a filmography of The Wiere Brothers. Violins and Derby Hats was an autobiography, not just of Harry Wiere, but of the entire comedy trio The Wiere Brothers, of which Harry was a part. This appears to be a manuscript copy with Xeroxed pages. The signatures and notations are original, however. HARRY WIERE (1906-1992, born in Berlin, Germany) was one-third of the comedy trio The Wiere Brothers, which included his brothers HERBERT WIERE (1908-1999, born in Vienna, Austria) and SYLVESTER WIERE (1909-1970, born in Prague, Bohemia, Austria-Hungary, now the Czech Republic). The three started performing on stage in 1922 and made their American debut in 1935. Highly talented, the Wiere Brothers worked comedy into an act that included singing, dancing, acrobatics and playing a myriad of instruments. They were headliners in theatres and night clubs, but Hollywood didn't utilize their talents very often. Highlights of their film careers include cameos in the Bob Hope and Bing Crosby "Road" comedy Road to Rio (1947) and Elvis Presley's Double Trouble (1967), their last film appearance. They also had their own TV series, Oh, Those Bells (1962). The Wiere Brothers went into semi-retirement after Sylvester's death. Lightly toned and creased. Some pages torn and dented at edges. Otherwise in fine condition.
