Cat. #0014221321: RICHARD "SKEETS" GALLAGHER

Bold vintage blue fountain pen signature on a 2x6-inch portion of a pale pink autograph album page, acquired in-person in October of 1937. In good condition, with neat trimming to the lower edge, and nice for matting with a favorite photograph. Comic character actor Richard "Skeets" Gallagher's nickname, which was short for "Mosquitoes", referred to his tendency to flit about, anxiously, like a tiny, winged insect. Highlights of his silent and early talkie movie career included Alex the Great (1928), Honey (1930), Possessed (1931), Up Pops the Devil (1931), The Phantom of Crestwood (1932), The Unwritten Law (1932), Bird of Paradise (1932), Alice in Wonderland (1933), In the Money (1933), Lightning Strikes Twice (1934), and Mr. Satan (1938).
