"Mr. Television" signed this postcard with "Love" in 1973
Autograph Note signed "To Jane/Love/Milton Berle". 5¼x3, United States Postal Service 6¢ postcard. Postmarked Florida, June 3, 1973. Addressed to Jane [last name obscured], Forest Hills, New York in unknown hand. With the encouragement of the quintessential stage-mother, Berle (1908-2002, born Mendel Berlinger in Manhattan, New York) played small supporting roles in silents, including the part of a newsboy in the first-ever feature-length comedy, Tillie's Punctured Romance (1914), starring Charlie Chaplin. Berle then moved into vaudeville and became a headliner, with occasional stopovers on Broadway and in Hollywood, into the WWII years. His lengthy starring role in the 1943 edition of Broadway's Ziegfeld Follies established him as a star. After only moderate success on radio and in films, Berle made a spectacular television debut as star of NBC's Texaco Star Theatre in 1948, dominating the airwaves on Tuesday nights until 1956. He became known as "Mr. Television" and was everyone's "Uncle Miltie". Lightly toned, stained, soiled and creased. Normal postal stamps, which have bled through paper and touch signature. Signature has minor show-through. Paper loss on address side, which obscures part of last name. Otherwise in fine condition.
