Pencil signatures on an album leaf: rare signature of Cardwell, who has added an autograph sentiment, and on verso a signature by Corrigan
Autograph Sentiment signed: "Always/Jimmy Cardwell", 5¾x4¼ album leaf. Also signed on verso: "Lloyd Corrigan". James "Jimmy" Cardwell (1921-1954) made a promising film debut in The Sullivans (1944), and was signed to a 7-year contract by Twentieth Century-Fox. Despite strong performances in A Walk in the Sun (1945) and He Walked by Night (1948), he soon found himself consigned to B movies. His one starring role, the 1949 turkey Daughter of the Jungle, didn't help. Assigned no-credit parts in some later films, and unable to find steady work in television, Cardwell took some pre-med courses and even joined an acrobatic troupe before taking his own life at the age of 32. Reversing the typical sequence, LLOYD CORRIGAN (1900-1969) directed movies before he acted in them. In the 1930s he directed several mystery films, including a trilogy of Fu Manchu films. Beginning in 1940, he appeared on screen in character roles, including four Boston Blackie movies, Cyrano de Bergerac, The Manchurian Candidate, and his last big screen appearance, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963). His TV appearances included recurring roles on The Ray Milland Show (1954-1955) and the sitcom Happy (1960-1961). Small binding holes at left edge. Lightly soiled and toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
