Description

    Wingy Manone Unsigned Window Card. Joseph Manone got the nickname "Wingy" as a child, when he lost his arm in a streetcar accident. From then on, he wore a prosthetic arm whenever he performed, and he used it so well that very few fans ever noticed his disability. He studied the trumpet, and in 1921, at age seventeen, he was playing on Mississippi riverboats. In 1924, Wingy made his recording debut and by 1929, Manone was recording with Benny Goodman, both as a leader and as a sideman. In 1939, after recording his theme song and major hit record "Isle of Capri", he moved to Hollywood and found work in motion pictures, appearing in such films as "Rhythm on the River", "Hi-Ya Sailor", and "Sarge Goes to College." This card is done in red and features a nice photo of Wingy at the top right. Pinholes at the corners and some a small missing piece at the right lower corner, plus a small hole at the bottom left.
