Cat. #00151120021: GEORGE "GABBY" HAYES

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Exceedingly rare vintage 10 x 13.25-inch matte-finish black and white chest-up portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen. In fine condition, with slightly unevenly trimmed borders and a mild background bend just above his right arm, not substantially detracting from the overall appearance of the piece. Ever-unkempt, incomprehensible old geezer of a character actor George "Gabby" Hayes was invariably cast as the hero's sidekick in western flicks of the 1930s and 1940s, unforgettable as Windy Halliday alongside William "Hopalong" Cassidy and Gabby Whitaker opposite Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and Wild Bill Elliott.
