Inscribed photograph signed: "House Peters, Jr.", "Best to Clint -/Frank Coghlan, Jr.", 5¾x4. Coghlan, born FRANCIS EDWARD COGHLAN, JR (1916-2009), started appearing in films at the tender age of 3 to help pay his father's tuition for chiropractic college. His first appearances were bit roles in two-reel comedies until he caught the eye of Cecil B. DeMille, who called Coghlan "the perfect example of a homeless waif". He began appearing as Junior Coghlan in major silents like The Yankee Clipper (1926), Let 'Er Go Gallegher (1927) and Slide, Kelly, Slide (1927) and as the juvenile versions of Leon Janney in Penrod and Sam (1930) and James Cagney in Public Enemy (1931). Fans of Republic serials may also recognize him as Captain Marvel's alter-ego in The Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941). In all, Coghlan had almost 130 film and TV appearances between 1920 and 1974, as well as a 23-year career as an aviator in the United States Navy. HOUSE PETERS, JR. (1916-2008), played the original "Mr. Clean" on a string of early TV commercials for the product. The son of actor House Peters, he had begun his film career in "B" Westerns and went on to play supporting characters and villians over the next 32 years. Known as "Junior" or "Juny" by his friends, Peters also served in the U.S. Army Air Corps' Air Sea Rescue section during WWII. Upon returning home after the war, he found work in both films and on television, but Peters left show business in 1965 (after finishing an episode of Lassie) - keeping a promise to himself that he would leave the business if he hadn't achieved star status by age 50. House, who then went into the real estate business in the San Fernando Valley, had appeared in a number of films, including Ace Drummond (1936), Adventures of Frank and Jesse James (1948), Cow Town (1950), The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), Red Planet Mars (1952), Strategic Air Command (1955), Rebel Without a Cause (1955), and The Great Sioux Massacre (1965, his last film). After making his television debut in 1950 on The Gene Autry Show, Peters guest starred on such series as Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (1951, 1952), The Cisco Kid (1952), The Roy Rogers Show (1956, 1957), Broken Arrow (1958), M Squad (1959), Gunsmoke (1959, 1961), Wagon Train (1958, 1961, 1962) and Perry Mason (1964).
