STEPIN FETCHIT
Stepin Fetchit inscribes his signature on an index card in pencil.
Inscribed signature: "To Edmund/From/Stepin Fetchit", 5x3 index card. The first Black actor to become a millionaire, Stepin Fetchit (1902-1985), who debuted in In Old Kentucky (1927), made some 50 films. Born Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry in 1892, Stepin Fetchit renamed himself before his arrival in Hollywood (in the late 1920s) for a racehorse that won money for him. The first black actor to receive featured billing in American films, he also composed and wrote the lyrics for the score of One More Spring (1935). Although his screen image is criticized for reinforcing negative stereotypes about Black Americans, Fetchit received a special Image Award from the Hollywood chapter of the NAACP (1976) and was elected to the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame (1978). Light stain at upper right blank edge. Fine condition.
