Cat. #001587: TOM KENNEDY

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly uncommon vintage inscribed brown fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in the late 1920s or early 1930s. In good condition. Tom Kennedy, brawny boxer-turned-character actor of the silent and early talkie era played big, likable dimwits, unforgettably ratcheting up the comedy alongside W.C. Fields, the Marx Brothers, and Laurel and Hardy.  He also popped up in similar supporting roles in Charlie Chan's Chance (1932), the hilarious short Oh, My Nerves! (1935), The Case of the Stuttering Bishop (1937), The Princess and the Pirate (1944), They Live by Night (1948), the sci-fi and fantasy flicks Mighty Joe Young (1949) and Invasion U.S.A. (1952), M (1951), and the Lon Chaney biopic Man of a Thousand Faces (1956), among nearly 400 other shorts and features.
