Vintage candid 3½x5½ photo of Gaxton on an city sidewalk, from the collection of Francis and Violet Zane.
Photograph signed: "William Gaxton". B/w, 3½x5½. Candid photo. Vaudeville and Broadway performer William Gaxton (1893-1963) was more prominent on stage than in film, starring in such musical hits as A Connecticut Yankee (1927-1928), Anything Goes (1934-1935) and Louisiana Purchase (1940-1941). He also had important roles in 8 films, beginning with the W. C. Fields silent It's the Old Army Game (1926) and concluding with Diamond Horseshow (1945). In The Heat's On (1943), he played a theatrical producer in love with his star, played by Mae West. This photograph is from the collection of Francis and Violet Zane, Hawaii natives who moved to California in the 1920's. Francis Zane had a job at the historic Curran Theater and the San Francisco Opera House, which is where he began his massive collection, with photographs and materials ranging from the 1920's to 1960's. The location and luck of his occupation would land him smack dab in the middle of the celebrity world, allowing him to capture some of the most unique and interesting pieces of Hollywood History. Lightly bowed. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
