RITZ BROTHERS: JIMMY RITZ
The comedian brother signs their stage name in black ink
Signature(s): "Ritz Brothers", in black ink, 6x4½. JIMMY RITZ (1904-1985), born Jimmy Joachim, was part of a comedy trio with brothers Al and Harry, managed by a fourth brother, George. After a brief stint as "the Collegians," they began performing comedy routines as The Ritz Brothers. The team was known for slapstick dance routines, tongue-twisting banter, and wide-eyed expressions. Starting out in Broadway reviews, the Ritz Brothers made their Hollywood debut in Hotel Anchovy, in 1934. Other movie vehicles included Sing, Baby Sing (1936), Life Begins in College (1937), The Three Musketeers (1939) and Never a Dull Moment(1943). The brothers remained popular thereafter in night clubs and other live venues. Al died in 1965, but Jimmy and Harry were in demand for guest appearances after Mel Brooks called the Ritz Brothers his idols. Binding holes on left margin. Corners lightly worn and creased. Lightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
