Cat. #00116642: THE DEAD END KIDS

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Extremely rare and absolutely incredible 9.5 x 8-inch black and white publicity still for 1937's Dead End, individually signed and dedicated in black fountain pen in-person in 1938 by Bobby Jordan, Billy Halop, Huntz Hall, Gabriel Dell, and Leo B. Gorcey. One of the boys added the title of the film in the bottom right-hand corner. On the verso, Bernard Punsy, who isn't pictured in the still but made his movie debut in this film, has also signed, adding his character name, Milty! This the only jointly-autographed portrait of the Dead End Kids known to exist, to our knowledge. In good condtion, with a chip to the bottom left-hand corner, where some tape was removed; mounting remnants at the corner tips and on the verso; and a few minor surface crinkles.
