HATTIE McDANIEL (1895-1952) was the first Black actress to win an Academy Award, capturing the Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 1939 for her role of Mammy in Gone With the Wind. McDaniel had a strong film resume even before Gone With the Wind, especially in light of the limited opportunities for black actors in that era, beginning with small roles in films like Mae West's I'm No Angel (1934) and Shirley Temple's The Little Colonel (1935), working up to major roles in Saratoga (1937) and The Shopworn Angel (1938). She was also the first Black woman to sing on American radio, and after many performances on such radio programs as Amos 'n Andy and the Eddie Cantor Show, she starred in the title role of Beulah on the radio. Because of other commitments, she appeared in only six 1952 episodes of the television version, which ran from 1950-1953. Autographs of McDaniel are scarce and desirable. JEAN HERSHOLT (1886-1956), a Danish actor who had starred in silent films, was cast in Reunion as Dr. Dafoe, the country doctor who delivered the quints. The real Dr. Dafoe blocked projected Hersholt films starring this character, so Hersholt created another doctor, Dr. Christian, whom he played in a popular radio series. ROCHELLE HUDSON (1914-1972), cast in girl-next-door roles in films of the 1930s, had later careers as a naval intelligence officer and a real estate agent. She played Natalie Wood's mother in Rebel without a Cause (1955). HELEN VINSON, well established on Broadway before she came to films, was the wife of tennis star Fred Perry. GEORGE "SLIM" SUMMERVILLE (1892-1946), featured as one of Mack Sennett's Keystone Kops, made a strong dramatic debut in talking films with All Quiet on the Western Front (1930). ROBERT KENT (1912-1954), formerly an amateur boxer, played the leading man in many "B" action movies. DOROTHY PETERSON (1897-1979) often played careworn mothers, even from a young age. Her last role was as Shirley Temple's mom in That Hagen Girl (1947). JOHN QUALEN (1899-1987), often cast in John Ford Westerns, played the underground figure Berger in Casablanca (1942). ALAN DINEHART (1889-1944) called himself Hollywood's "most versatile villain", cast as a bad guy in dozens of films. The promising stage and film career of Hungarian-born J. EDWARD BROMBERG (1903-1951) was cut short when he was blacklisted for alleged communist sympathies. Shakespearean actress SARA HADEN (1897-1981) is best remembered as disapproving Aunt Millie in the Andy Hardy movies. British actor MONTAGU LOVE (1877-1943), a frequent villain in silent films, often played historical figures in the talking era, including Henry VIII, Phillip II, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. Irish actor TOM MOORE (1885-1955) starred in films of the late silent and early talking era. GEORGE ERNEST, an alumnus of two Our Gang films, starred in a series of MGM films featuring the "Jones family", designed to compete with Andy Hardy. KATHARINE ALEXANDER (1898-1981) had her greatest successes on the stage, including a London revival of Death of a Salesman in 1949. ESTHER RALSTON (1902-1994), a major Paramount star of the silent era, was called "the American Venus" after her 1926 film of that name. BOGART ROGERS' production credits included White Fang (1936). Screenwriter SAM HELLMAN wrote scripts for Will Rogers, Spencer Tracy and Shirley Temple, among others. GLADYS LEHMAN, nominated for an Oscar for his script for Two Girls and a Sailor (1944), was a founder of the Screenwriters Guild. DANIEL CLARK (1890-1961), Tom Mix's favorite cameraman, received a special Oscar in 1943 for inventing an improved lens calibration system. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
