Photograph signed: "Ted Healy". B/w, 8x10. Publicity photo for Metro Goldwyn Mayer. Ink note on verso (unknown hand): "1936." Comedian Ted Healy (1896-1937) began as a vaudeville performer, becoming so popular that his acts became Broadway reviews. He was assisted by three friends, Moe and Shep Howard and Larry Fine, whom he would poke and kick and otherwise abuse on stage. When Healy starred in his first film musical, Soup to Nuts (1930), he gave supporting roles to these friends. In 1934, the friends went off on their own as the soon to be famous Three Stooges. Healy himself continued to star in films of the 1930s, the last one, Love is a Headache (1938), released after his death. Slightly soiled. Light crease in upper right corner. Overall, fine condition.
