RITTER (1905-1974, born Maurice Woodward Ritter in Marvaul, Texas) was a country music star who also was successful in Westerns, appearing in 85 films. Rivaling Gene Autry in popularity at the beginning of his career, Ritter curtailed his filmmaking in the late 1940s, opting to tour in live shows with his horse, White Flash. As a singer, he became a weekly fixture at the Grand Ole Opry. The father of actor John Ritter, he is the only entertainer elected to both the Cowboy Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame. FAY (1915-2003, born Dorothy Fay Southworth in Prescott, Arizona) was an American movie actress with 19 movies to her credit between 1938 to 1941, many of them B westerns. Four of these were with Western star and future husband Tex Ritter. Lightly toned and soiled. Hole in front and rear covers with tape repair. Lightly rounded and worn corners.
