[SMITH & DALE]
A photograph of the two vaudeville comedians in suits, signed to "A good 'mugg' 'o" from Smith & Dale in an unknown hand
Inscribed photograph unsigned: "To a good 'mugg' 'o-/Bill Buckley/From 2 Muggs' Tugs/[Smith & Dale]/1949", in black felt tip, Sepia toned 8x10. Joe Smith (born Joseph Sultzer) teamed with Charlie Dale (born Charles Marks) as a vaudeville comedy team for 75 years. Smith and Dale, who adopted that name because a local printer gave them discounts on the printed cards of another act, which had folded, came from the same New York Jewish culture which produced George Burns, Eddie Cantor, George Jessel and the Marx Brothers. They were seen on Broadway stages from 1902, and in films from the late 1920s. Though not as well remembered today, their comic dialogue, "Doctor Kronkheit and His Only Living Patient," was as popular in its time as Abbott and Costello's "Who's on First", and equally corny. They are buried in the same plot, along with Dale's wife, with a headstone marked "Smith & Dale: Booked Solid". Light surface creases and dents (not seen head on). Slight scuffs across image (not seen head on). Edges and corners slightly worn and creased. Pin hole in bottom left corner. Slightly soiled on upper margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
