Cat. #0017382: VICTOR MOORE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Bold vintage fountain pen signature on a 4x5-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1930s.  in good condition, with one stray brown fleck embedded in the fiber of the paper itself, and suitable for matting.  Vaudeville funnyman and Broadway actor Victor Moore gained popularity as Kid Burns in "Forty-Five Minutes from Broadway" (1906) and "The Talk of New York" (1907).  The wistful, but tough character helped established Moore's lovable persona in silent screen comedies, including the Chimmie Fadden series (1915), and classic talkies like Swing Time (1936), the tearjerker Make Way for Tomorrow (1937), Louisiana Purchase (1941), Star Spangled Rhythm (1942), It Happened on Fifth Avenue (1947), and The Seven-Year Itch (1955).
