Item #47495 Photograph Signed. Stepin FETCHIT.

Photograph Signed.

Debuting in 1927, black comic character actor Lincoln Perry portrayed the offensively mumbling, shuffling sidekick -- billed "The Laziest Man in the World" -- in countless films and is often considered the first African-American to have a true career in Hollywood. Item #47495

PS, 4¼" X 5½", n.p., n.d. [ca. 1965]. Very good. Cheaply printed postcard photograph showing Fetchit with Jimmy Stewart in "Bend of the River" (1952), signed boldly by Fetchit in green ballpoint along the top. Address portion on verso is blank and text-heavy left side shows Fetchit with Muhammad Ali.

Price: $100.00
