    "Mother Carey's Chickens" Photo Archive. Seven ultra-rare photos from RKO's Mother Carey's Chickens, all from the personal scrapbook of Donnie Dunagan, who made his film debut in this production. There are six 8" x 10" shots: Donnie standing in a matte-finish portrait by Musart (the photographer's raised stamp in the lower right corner), with a secretarial signature "Best wishes Donnie Dunagan Hollywood 1938"; Donnie riding in a convertible with co-star Anne Shirley; two of Donnie on roller skates; Donnie napping in a chair, one shoe off, one shoe on and flanked by a teddy bear; and Donnie asleep in bed, with a cat and a cowboy doll. There's also a 3" x 5" snapshot of a smiling Donnie in costume on the set of Mother Carey's Chickens. Five of the 8"x 10" pictures have residue on the reverse from the scrapbook and three of them have the RKO Radio Pictures stamp on the reverse. From the Donnie Dunagan Archive.
