Signed Photo - 1930
A very nice vintage glossy 8 x 10 photo, signed and inscribed in fountain pen to a Columbia Artists management agent, “H. K. Hooks, Sincerely, Will Rogers.” In good condition, with chipping and paper loss to bottom and right edge, scattered creasing and surface impressions, tack holes to corners, mounting remnants to reverse, and some scattered light silvering. Would frame nicely with matting covering the edges.
WILL ROGERS (1879-1935). Popular Cherokee-American entertainer, comedian, humorist, and social commentator who cultivated an image as a wisecracking cowboy and earned worldwide renown for his mordant wit and skill at rope tricks. After a successful vaudeville career, including a stint as one of the star attractions of the Ziegfeld Follies, Rogers made an easy transition to films and became one of the top box-office draws of the late 1920s and early 1930s. His career came to an untimely end when he died in a plane crash in Alaska along with pilot Wiley Post.
