    Description

    Amos and Andy Visit the Webbs. A two-page lot from the guest books of Clifton Webb and his mother Mabel. The January 22, 1933 sheet is especially notable for the signatures of Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll, who were immensely popular as Amos and Andy on radio. (The characters were black - the actors were white.) The incredibly diversified gathering also included Ethel Barrymore and Glenn Anders (a stage star later memorable in Orson Welles' 1948 Lady from Shanghai). The second page, dated February 2, 1931, includes movie dramatic powerhouse Ruth Chatterton, perhaps most memorable in 1929's Madame X and 1936's Dodsworth, who signs "Ruthie," as well as her husband of that time, actor Ralph Forbes, who appeared in such films as Twentieth Century (1934) and Romeo and Juliet (1936). Quite a variety of famous and long-ago talent on these vintage pages. With COA from PSA/DNA.
