Cat. #00158282: HELEN KANE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Exceedingly rare and completely irreplaceable 11x14-inch sepia-tone image from Dangerous Nan McGrew (1930), shown alongside co-star Stuart Erwin, boldly signed and inscribed at the time of the film for the hairstylist: "To 'Fred' who was brave enough to fix Dangerous Nan McGrew's hair-- Sincerely Helen Kane." In good condition, with two tiny surface tears to the bottom left-hand corner area and the bottom right-hand edge. Fantastic for display. Adorable, squeaky-voiced singing and occasional film star Helen Kane made wildly popular records of "Get Out and Get Under the Moon" (1928), "That's My Weakness Now" (1928), "I Wanna Be Loved By You" (1928), "Is There Anything Wrong with That?" (1928), "Don't Be Like That" (1928), "Me and the Man in the Moon" (1928), "Button Up Your Overcoat" (1929), "Do Something" (1929), "I'd Do Anything for You" (1929), "He's So Unusual" (1929), "Aint'cha?" (1929), and "Dangerous Nan McGrew" (1930). Mae Questel's dead-on impersonation of Kane was used by Max Fleischer Studios as the voice for Betty Boop in 1930s.
