THE RITZ BROTHERS: JIMMY RITZ. Signature: "Ritz/Bros." by Jimmy Ritz in pencil, 4x3¼, irregularly cut. Magazine photograph, b/w, 1¼x2½, affixed at lower right corner. Brothers AL RITZ (1901-1965), JIMMY RITZ (1904-1985) and HARRY RITZ (1907-1986), who became known for their wide-eyed expressions, first became a team called the Collegians in 1925 (managed by their oldest brother, George). The zany comedians debuted in Hollywood with a film short, Hotel Anchovy, in 1934. Their 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 live performances and TV guest appearances. Jimmy and Harry appeared individually in small film roles into the mid-1970s. Jimmy's later films include Blazing Stewardesses (with Harry), Won Ton Ton, the Dog Who Saved Hollywood (1976) and Code Name: Zebra (1984, his last film). Slightly creased, rippled around photograph. Lightly soiled, pinhead-size glue remnant at lower edge. Overall, fine condition.
