Huntz Hall (1919-1999) appeared in a total of 81 East Side Kids/Bowery Boys features and serials, more than any other actor. In this postcard, he's pictured in character. Hall always played the same type of role, first called Pig, then Glimpy and, finally, Sach. He had attended New York's famous Professional Children's School and was a boy soprano with the Madison Square Quintette. As a child, he was a radio actor, playing in such shows as Lady Next Door, Billy and Betty, and Bobby Benson. From 1935-1937, Hall played Dippy in the Broadway play Dead End, recreating his role in the 1937 film, Dead End, starring Humphrey Bogart and a group of youngsters who became known as the Dead End Kids. Stage roles Huntz Hall played in the 1980's and 1990's across the country included Willie Clark in The Sunshine Boys, Felix in The Odd Couple and Milt Manville in the play, Luv. 1-inch crease at top margin, does not affect signature. The pen Hall used scratched the surface of the postcard resulting in white areas to which the ink did not adhere. Slightly creased and worn at corners. Fine condition.
