Adler (1914-2001, born Lawrence Cecil Adler in Baltimore, Maryland) was widely acknowledged as the world's best harmonica player and brought new credibility to the instrument. Starting humbly in vaudeville, Adler moved on to movie roles, beginning with Many Happy Returns (1934). He entertained troops during World War II. Adler performed works by Bach and Vivaldi and even inspired works to be written for his instrument by major composers, Vaughan Williams and others. On his 80th birthday, he released an album of songs by George Gershwin. Adler was unfairly blacklisted in the US during the McCarthy era, but attracted a large following in Europe. Reportedly, his fan club numbered 300,000 members! Lightly toned, silvered and creased. Pinhead-sized stains on image. Light scratches (not visible head-on) and impressions on image. Top left corner creased. Otherwise fine condition.
