WALTER CATLETT
The early Broadway and Hollywood comedian signs his name for child actor Billy Seay
Inscribed signature: "To/ Billy/ Walter Catlett" in black ink. 5x3 card. 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. From the album collection of child actor BILLY SEAY (1922-2012), who appeared in many films throughout the decade including The Greater Glory (1926), My Man (1928), and The Marriage Playground (1929). Seay would leave Hollywood in the early 1930s to become a noted artist and illustrator. Toned and soiled. Light surface creases. Corners rounded. Small pinpoint stains throughout. Otherwise, fine condition.
