Sale Price $288.00
Rare vintage photo of "The Baron" as he appears in Ziegfeld Follies in 1931.
Inscribed Photograph signed: "To Harry Wilkinson'/With every best wish/& sincere regards/Jack Pearl/Ziegfeld Follies/1931". Sepia, 8x10. Pearl starred in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1931 on Broadway. Comic actor Jack Pearl (1894-1982) starred in vaudeville, on Broadway stages, and above all in a series of radio programs of the 1930s. He created (or loosely adapted) the character Baron Munchausen, who told far-fetched stories in a comic German accent. His stock reply to challenges, "Vass you dere, Sharley?" became a national catch phrase. He starred in the film Meet the Baron (1933), and wrote a juvenile novel featuring Munchausen the following year. Corners creased and worn with pin-sized holes. Edges worn. Light surface scratches. Lightly soiled. Ink notes (unknown hand), adhesive residue and collector's stamps on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
