Autograph Notes Signed: "To/Jack Jr/Sincerely/Robert Armstrong" and, on verso, "To Jack Jr./Sincerely/Edward Everett Horton", 5¾x4¼ album leaf. Stage and screen actor ROBERT ARMSTRONG (1890-1973), born Donald Smith, is perhaps best remembered as Carl Denham, the man who convinces Fay Wray to travel to Africa to find a giant ape -- and then brings him to New York -- in the 1933 classic, King Kong. Armstrong, who spoke the film's final words - "It wasn't the planes...It was beauty killed the beast." - reprised his role in the film's sequel, Son of Kong, and played the role of a theatrical producer in a similar film, Mighty Joe Young, in 1949. The character actor's other feature film credits include My Favorite Spy (1942), Around the World (1943), Belle of the Yukon (1944), Blood on the Sun (1945), The Paleface (1948) and For Those Who Think Young (1964, his last film). Armstrong was also part of one of television's classic moments. During a sketch on The Red Skelton Show, the comedian looked at Armstrong and ad-libbed: "Say, did you ever get that monkey off that building?" Often mistaken for an Englishman, Brooklyn-born EDWARD EVERETT HORTON (1886-1970) began his film career in silent movies. As manager of Los Angeles' Majestic Theater in the late 1920s, he helped train several silent film leading men to use their voices properly in stage work, preparing them for talking pictures. Horton played supporting roles in the 1930s and 1940s, most notably in the Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers musicals at RKO. During this period, he also became a radio actor. Horton's voice was heard as the narrator of the "Fractured Fairy Tales" segment on the ABC cartoon series, Rocky and His Friends (1959-1961), and he starred on ABC's F Troop (1965-1967) as Hekawi Indian tribe medicine man Roaring Chicken. "g" of "Armstrong" slightly smudged. Lightly creased, touching the "t" of Armstrong. Faint pencil line under both signatures. Otherwise, fine condition.
