STEPIN FETCHIT
The first African American actor to become a millionaire signs this postcard with a scene from The County Chairman with Will Rogers, in green ink
Picture post card signed: "Stepin Fetchitt" in green ink. B/w, 5½x4¼. From his film The County Chairman with Will Rogers. No stamp or postmark. Stepin Fetchit(1902-1985), the first African American actor to become a millionaire, who debuted in In Old Kentucky (1927), made some 50 films. Born Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry, Fetchit had 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 in 1976, and he was elected to the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame two years later. Lightly toned. Edges slightly worn. Top margin has slight indent from paper clip. Otherwise, fine condition.
