THE IMPATIENT MAIDEN MOVIE CAST: ANDY DEVINE AND UNA MERKEL
Andy Devine and Una Merkel sign a vintage publicity still of them in their movie The Impatient Maiden.
Photograph signed: "Andy Devine" and "Sincerely/Una Merkel". These two character actors provide comic relief in this film based on a novel by Donald Henderson Clarke. DEVINE (1905-1977), who first appeared in silent films, was afraid that his rasping voice, the result of a childhood injury, would exclude him from the talkies. On the contrary, it helped make him the quintessential comic sidekick, first in films to Richard Arlen (1939-1941) and Roy Rogers (late 1940s), then on TV to Guy Madison's Wild Bill Hickok (1951-1958), remembered for his line, "Hey, Wild Bill! Wait for me." He hosted a popular children's TV program in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Devine was also a regular on Jack Benny's radio show from 1937. MERKEL (1903-1986) began in silent films. Comic roles were her specialty. She was nominated for an Oscar as Best Supporting Actress near the end of her career (Summer and Smoke, 1961). Vintage photo. Two 2" cracks in lower right. Archival tape placed on verso to prevent further damage. Worn at edges, with ½" vertical tear in lower margin.
