Beery (1885-1949, born in Kansas City, Missouri), the younger brother of Noah Beery, Sr., worked in theater before signing his first film contract (1913). Among his memorable movies were The Champ, for which he won a Best Actor Oscar in 1931, Dinner at Eight (1933), Viva Villa and Treasure Island (1934), Barnacle Bill (1941) and Bad Bascomb (1946). He began his career at the age of 16 as an elephant trainer's assistant with the Ringling Bros. circus. Moving to Hollywood, Beery starred in a series of comedy shorts as Sweedie, a Swedish maid. With the advent of sound, he showed his versatility in leading roles and became one of the most popular performers of his time. Among his roles in the 1930s were Pancho Villa, Long John Silver and P.T. Barnum. Lightly toned, soiled, stained and rippled. Random pencil marks. Note has been torn neatly from a larger sheet at bottom. Otherwise in fine condition.
