WALTER CATLETT
Walter Catlett inscribed his signature to Elsie Myrus on a pink album leaf.
Inscribed original art signed: "To -/Elsie Myrus/'All the Best, Says'/Walter Catlett/Hollywood [drawn cat]llett Aug. 11. 1938/[drawn pair of glasses]", 6x4½ pink album leaf. 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. Binding holes at left edge. Fine condition.
