Conklin, Chester - 1940's Signed Album Page w/ Orig. 1928 Still Photo
1940's Blue ink signature and inscription,
"To Frank, Just for Fun, Chester Conklin"
on a green 4 1/2 x 5 3/4 album page. Minor toning to page. British Actress & Olympic ice skater Belita is signed on verso. This album page originates from the "Frank Monteleone" collection. Very Fine.
Comes with an original 7 7/8 x 10 ¼ “First National Pictures” still photo from the 1928 film, “The Big Noise”. Chipped lower left corner. Repaired 4-inch horizontal tear (taped on verso) approximately 3 ½ inches from the bottom border. Tear disappears when viewed from front. Pencil descriptive writing on verso, including “state 4/21” which is probably from the theatre that ran the film. Handstamp date of Mar 12, 1935, and two retail photo company stickers.
Will make a great display of this comic legend who was one of the original Keystone Cops.
