Vintage black and white 11x14 publicity photograph of W. C. Fields in a suit and tie.
Vintage Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Travis Martin/Best wishes and/appreciation from/his friend/Bill Fields". B/w, 11x14. Photo by Hal Phyfe (imprint at lower left). W.C. Fields (1879-1946) began entertaining as an amusement park juggler at the age of fourteen. He was a vaudeville headliner before he was twenty and toured Europe in 1901, giving a command performance at Buckingham Palace. His Broadway debut in The Ham Tree (1905) was followed by appearances in the Ziegfeld Follies (1915-1921) and in George White's Scandals (1933). Fields starred in Poppy on Broadway (1923) and the next year made his first film, Janice Meredith (1924). Fields' style, verbal rather than visual, and irascible con-man philosophy made him a favorite, especially with the advent of sound, where his raspy voice provided the final touch to his comedy. He starred in movies including My Little Chickadee (1940) and Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (1941). Writing light but completely legible. Nicked at lower right. Fine condition. Framed in Gallery of History style: 17¼x27.
