WALTER CATLETT
He pens a note to a fan on this index card in black ink
Autograph Note Signed: "Hello Jim/Walter Catlett", 5x3 index card with b/w, 1x1 newspaper photograph attached at bottom margin (two surfaces). Stained at upper right corner from newspaper article on verso. Typed information at upper and lower blank margins. Otherwise, fine condition. Included unsigned b/w, 4¾x4 casual photograph of Leon Errol and Walter Catlett on the Riverboat Rhythm set at R. K. O. Lightly creased. Ink note on photo. Walter Catlett (1889-1960) is best-known for playing pompous and dithering (and spectacle-wearing) characters. He got his start in stock theatre in vaudeville in his native Frisco, moving up to Broadway in 1916, including the Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr. shows Ziegfeld Follies of 1917 (1917, 111 performances) and Sally (1920-1922, 561 performances and 1923, 24 performances). He was hired for the 1924 silent film Second Youth (the first of almost 150 film and TV performances for him), but it took the advent of talkies before Hollywood could fully exploit his shtick. One memorable example was the screwball comedy Bringing Up Baby (1938). Catlett was hired for a bit part as Constable Slocum, but his performance was so funny that his part was expanded, and Howard Hawks kept him on to offer off-screen comedic advice to Katherine Hepburn.
