Sale Price $288.00
He signs a typed 1954 letter regarding a "Little Iodine" song.
Typed Letter signed: "Jimmy", 1 page, 8½x12. Pebble Beach, California, 1954 January 14. On his cartoon letterhead to John Milton Hagen, Mill Valley, California. In full: "Following our telephone conversation a few minutes ago I am forwarding the attached so-called 'Tin Pan Alley' opinion of your song project which accompanied a letter from Chester Weil. [Item not included.] This is the original but you may keep it since obviously, if there is to be a revision of the lyrics, I can do very little until I know something about new metre, etc. I still strongly suggest that any opinions you may have regarding this matter you take directly up with Chester Weil. You will find him a delightful person to deal with. After all, it is your song and you shouldn't hesitate to make yourself heard in any respect. I shall be looking forward to the LITTLE IODINE record. Cheerio." American cartoonist Jimmy Hatlo (1897-1963) was born Jimmy Hatlow, but dropped the "w" except for an apostrophe at the end of his signature. Previously a sports and travel illustrator for a San Francisco newspaper, Hatlo began an instantly popular comic strip, They'll Do It Every Time in 1929, writing it until his death. The strip was syndicated in 1936, and spread to over 400 newspapers. The strip featured life's everyday ironies and frustrations, with topic ideas submitted by readers, who were credited in the final panel with a "tip of the Hatlo hat." In 1943, Hatlo turned a spin-off character, Little Iodine, a likable brat, into a strip of her own. They'll Do It Every Time and Little Iodine stories both appeared in books, and the latter inspired a 1946 film of the same name. Little Iodine continued until 1985, under other cartoonists. Mailing fold, not near signature. Light show-through of list on verso of newspapers it shows up in. Fine condition.
