Cat. #00158283: HELEN KANE

Rare, early vintage heavy pencil signature-- adding the Betty Boop catchphrase "Boop boop do"-- on a 4x6-inch pink album page, acquired in-person by inveterate autograph hound Roseanne Deerdorff Ochoa in 1935. In good condition and nice for matting. 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.
