STEPIN FETCHIT
Printed 5¾x4¼ photo with his ink signature, shown ringside with Robert Goulet at the Clay-Liston fight of 1965
Printed Photograph signed in ink: "Stepin/Fetchit". B/w 5¾x4¼. Shown with Robert Goulet. Printed composite photo on verso features Fetchit and Muhammad Ali in several poses each. 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, 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). Responding to a TV documentary that portrayed him as a racist stereotype, Fetchit insisted that he had never given eye-rolling, foot shuffling performances, although some of his imitators did. Supportint Fetchit, the NAACP gave him a special Image Award in 1976, and he was elected to the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame two years later. Muhammad Ali (still called Cassius Clay in 1965) later said, "It was not Martin Luther King that emancipated the modern Negro. It was Stepin Fetchit." Corners creased. Fine condition.
