Cat. #000971: CHEVY CHASE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rather scarce vintage 8x10-inch black and white glossy close-up shot, boldly autographed in black marker by the now far less obliging signer.  In good condition.  Considered one of the most likable comedic personalities of his generation, Chevy Chase first gained fame as a staple member of the inaugural cast of T.V.'s "Saturday Night Live" in 1975.  With his news updates always beginning with, "Good evening, I'm Chevy Chase and you're not", master pratfalls and bumbling impersonation of President Ford, the actor quickly assumed breakout status, earning Emmys for both his writing and acting.  He went on to a career in big-screen comedies, including Foul Play (1978), Oh, Heavenly Dog (1980), Caddyshack (1980), Seems Like Old Time (1980), Fletch (1985), Spies Like Us (1986), Three Amigos! (1986), Funny Farm (1988), Caddyshack II (1988), Nothing But Trouble (1991), and Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992), but none more popular than the Vacation series, in which he starred as trouble-plagued, skirt-chasing family man Clark W. Griswold.
