    Ma and Pa Kettle Lot. As the bucolic Ma and Pa Kettle, Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride aided and abetted the survival of Universal Studios. The two character players made their debut Kettle appearance in The Egg and I (1947), making such a hit as the bumpkin couple (Main received a Best Supporting Actress Academy nomination) that Universal awarded them their own series. This lot contains an album page signed by Kilbride, with photo attached, and two album pages signed by Main, one with an attached picture of her with KiIlbride as the Kettles. Bonus: The Kilbride page has a Regis Toomey autograph on the verso, one of the Mains has a Donald Meek signature on the back, and the other Main has a Jeff Corey autograph on the reverse side. Pictures attached of Toomey, Corey and Meek (which also has an obit headline). Nice souvenirs of a once-upon-a-time very popular film comedy series, which for years was one of Universal Studios' major revenue winners. With COA from PSA/DNA.
