The group started doing college humor, but broadened its range to include satire on current events. They appeared in several films, including Al Jolson's The Singing Kid (1935), and were the top-billed stars in one (Thrill of a Lifetime, 1937). They also made a series of shorts for Paramount and then Vitaphone, with titles like The Vodka Boatmen. Jimmie Kern, later credited as JAMES V. KERN (1909-1966) went on to a career as a B-movie and TV director, directing many episodes of I Love Lucy and My Three Sons. The other group members, CHARLES ADLER (1886-1966), GEORGE KELLY (1890-1974) and BILLY MANN (1901-1974) did not continue to pursue entertainment careers. Edges toned. Corners lightly worn. Some signatures in poor contrast but fully legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
