Cat. #0015842711: DANNY KAYE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage fountain pen signature on a 4x5-inch yellow autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1940s. In good condition and ideal for matting. Song and dance man Danny Kaye was something of a comedic genius, delighting audiences with his tongue-twisting tunes and monologues in a wide variety of dialects.  Samuel Goldwyn had been trying to sign him to a movie contract for years before he finally agreed, and he was featured in a series of Technicolor musicals, including Up in Arms (1944).  He went on the charming work in Wonder Man (1945), The Kid from Brooklyn (1946), The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (1947), A Song Is Born (1948), The Inspector General (1949), Hans Christian Andersen (1952), White Christmas (1954), and The Court Jester (1955).
