MAXIE "SLAPSIE MAXIE" ROSENBLOOM (1904-1976) was World Light Heavyweight Champion from 1930 to 1934. He was nicknamed "Slapsie Maxie" by sportswriter Damon Runyon for his unorthodox style in the ring; when he signed his name, Rosenbloom frequently spelled it "Slapsy". As an actor, Rosenbloom typically portrayed punch-drunk characters. He appeared in over 30 films from 1933 to 1966 including Mr. Moto's Gamble (1938), Each Dawn I Die (1939), To the Shores of Tripoli (1942) and Abbott and Costello Meet the Keystone Kops (1955). BERT GORDON (1985-1974) was an American voice actor and comedian best known for his character The Mad Russian. This character was parodied in a number of cartoons including What's Cookin' Doc? (1944), Russian Rhapsody (1944), and Hare Ribbin (1944). His film credits include Izzy in the 1932 film Madison Sq. Garden, Goofy in the 1935 film She Gets Her Man, The Mad Russian in the 1941 film Sing for Your Supper, and Boris Rascalnikoff in Laugh Your Blues Away (1942) and Let's Have Fun (1943). He was also a regular on many television shows including The Eddie Cantor Program and The Abbott and Costello Program. Bottom edge of card torn. Right edge of album leaf frayed from binding.
