LARRY PARKS AND CHARLES J. WINNINGER
The famous actors sign on this album leaf dated June 25, 1945.
Autograph note signed: "To Betty/Sincerely/Larry Parks", on verso: "Charles J. Winninger", 4¼x6 album leaf. LARRYPARKS (1914-1975, born Samuel Lawrence Klausmann Parks in Olathe, Kansas) had prominent roles in many Columbia movies of the 1940s, seeming to break through to stardom with the title role in The Jolson Story (1946) and Jolson Sings Again (1949). (In both films he mimed, while Al Jolson himself did the singing) In 1950, however, Parks was called to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee about a short-lived prior membership in the Communist Party. Despite testifying before the Committee, reluctantly naming names of other participants, he was blacklisted by Hollywood. He remained active on stage, and returned to the big screen in Cross-Up (1958) and Dr. Freud (1962). Character actor CHARLES J.WINNINGER (1884-1969) is probably best remembered today for his numerous film performances in grandfatherly roles, often played with a roguish twinkle in a wandering eye. His career stretched back into the 19th Century. A part of his family's vaudeville act, the Winninger Family Novelty Company, from an early age, he performed at the Chicago World Fair of 1893 before striking out on his own in 1909. He made his Broadway debut in 1912 and in movies three years later. In all, Winninger appeared in 16 Broadway shows between 1912 and 1951, including the role of Cap'n Andy in the original production (1927-1929) and first revival (1932) of Show Boat (a role he reprised in the 1936 film adaptation) and over 70 movies and TV shows between 1915 and 1960, including Three Smart Girls (1936), Nothing Sacred (1937), Destry Rides Again (1939) and State Fair (1945), and as Charles Farrell's father on TV's The Charles Farrell Show (1956). Frayed at top margin from binding. Lightly toned. Corners lightly worn. Pencil note (unknown hand). Otherwise, fine condition.
