"The face that launched a thousand chips".
Photograph inscribed and signed: "Aloha Sy & Sherry,/'Happy Cookie'/Wally Amos/11-5-87". B/w, 5½x8½ overall, image 4¾x5¾ (one surface). "The father of the gourmet chocolate chip cookie" is pictured here in his trademark Hawaiian shirt and Panama hat. After leaving the William Morris Talent Agency to move to Hollywood and represent his own clients, Wally Amos began leaving his homemade chocolate chip cookies as calling cards and thank you gifts. Demand for his cookies was so great, that Hollywood stars and Motown artists loaned him money to start the Famous Amos Cookie Company on Sunset Boulevard in 1975. By 1985, revenues from sales of his cookies reached more than $10 million annually, but in 1989 reversals in finances resulted in Amos relinquishing ownership and the rights to his name. In 1999, after the Keebler Cookie Company bought Famous Amos, he signed on as the firm's Director of Cookie Fun, once again promoting the cookies that bear his name. Creased in upper right and lower left blank corners. Fine condition.
