Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00050222: JACK BENNY

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Bold vintage blue ballpoint pen signature on a 4x6-inch light green album page, acquired in-person in the 1950s. In good condition and excellent for matting with a favorite photograph of the star. Penny-pinching comedian, vaudevillian, radio star, violinist, and T.V. and film actor Jack Benny is widely recognized as one of the leading American entertainers of the 20th century. His best movies were made during his last three years in Hollywood: Charley's Aunt (1941), a lively adaptation of the old Brandon Thomas theatrical chestnut; Ernst Lubitsch's classic To Be or Not to Be (1942); and The Meanest Man in the World (1943), which allowed him to transcend his truculent radio persona by playing a man too nice for his own good.
