JOHN RAITT and EDWARD EVERETT HORTON Original portrait of Horton, drawn by John Raitt, signed by both! Original Art signed: "I think this is/perfect. Wish I/had one!/Edward Everett Horton/Mar-37", 5½x8½. Pencil drawing also signed by the artist "J Raitt". Often mistaken for an Englishman, Brooklyn-born Edward Everett Horton (1886-1970) began his film career in silent movies. As manager of Los Angeles' Majestic Theater in the late 1920s, he helped train several silent film leading men to use their voices properly in stage work, preparing them for talking pictures. Horton played supporting roles in the 1930s and 1940s, most notably in the Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers musicals at RKO. During this period, he also became a radio actor. Horton's voice was heard as the narrator of the "Fractured Fairy Tales" segment on the ABC cartoon series Rocky and His Friends (1959-1961), and he starred on ABC's F Troop (1965-1967) as Hekawi Indian tribe medicine man Roaring Chicken. While in college in the 1930s, JOHN RAITT began drawing portraits of famous people. He sent his artwork to each subject with a request that it be autographed and returned to him. Two horizontal folds. Tape affixed at corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
