Shown in a still from the film Reveille with Beverly
Printed Photograph Signed in Ink: "Larry Parks". B/w, 10x8. Larry Parks (1914-1975) 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). Parks was the romantic lead opposite Elizabeth Taylor in Love is Better Than Ever, filmed in 1950 but with a delayed release in 1952, stemming from Parks' political problems. Parks' wife, actress Betty Garrett, also blacklisted, survived to appear in many TV episodes since the 1960s. Toned at edges. Corners and edges lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
