SMILEY BURNETTE
Actor poses and signs in character as Frog Millhouse, draws small frog cartoon in black ink
Inscribed photograph signed in character: "To/ Willie/ Frog" in black ink. Also draws cartoon picture of a frog in black ink. Sepia, 8x10. Signs in character as Frog Millhouse. Actor, singer and songwriter Smiley Burnette (1911-1967), born Lester Alvin Burnette, appeared on vaudeville before joining his friend, Gene Autry, on the radio show, The National Barn Dance. Burnette and Autry broke into films together in 1934 (In Old Santa Fe), and they went on to appear in over 80 Westerns. Burnette, who played Autry's sidekick, Frog Millhouse, also provided comic relief for other Western stars, including Sunset Carson and Charles "Durango Kid" Starrett. A talented musician who played over 100 instruments, Burnette wrote over 300 Western songs, some of which he sang in his films. After retiring from the big screen in 1953, Burnette debuted on the small screen in 1958, appearing as a regular on the TV series, Ranch Party. His best known TV role was as Charley Pratt (1963-1967) on the TV sitcom, Petticoat Junction. 1-inch tear at bottom edge (lightly effecting signature). Otherwise, fine condition.
