    Donnie Dunagan Memorabilia Lot. A wide-ranging assortment of fascinating memorabilia, all from the personal collection of Donnie Dunagan, including six pages (twelve sides) from his scrapbook with ads and reviews for Mother Carey's Chickens, newspaper photos of Donnie's own trailer dressing room (with a picture of a nude-from-the rear Donnie showering in it!), a complete issue of the August 1938 Movie Story magazine (with a feature on Mother Carey's Chickens and other 1938 films), ads for Donnie's "On Stage. In Person!" appearance at San Francisco's RKO Golden Gate Theatre for the premiere of Mother Carey's Chickens, even a batch of Donnie's pay stubs from RKO (where he began his contract at $50 per week). The packet is a virtual time machine back to the entertainment world of 1938, and Hollywood's way of promoting new movies - and child actors. The old scrapbook pages are fragile and chipped, but the the clippings and the magazine are whole and well-preserved - Very Fine + condition. Wonderful memorabilia! From the Donnie Dunagan Archive.
