An Original Vintage Theatrical Autographed 8" x 10 1/4" [20 x 26 cm] Movie Still (Learn More)

Zeppo Marx (born Herbert Marx) was a comedian and actor from the 1920s to 1930s. He was one of the five Marx Brothers. His oldest brother Gummo left the act when they were still in vaudeville (he enlisted in the army, which tells you how much he wanted to leave the act!), and Zeppo somewhat took his place. He only appeared in their first four movies: Duck Soup, Horse Feathers, Monkey Business, and Animal Crackers. He left the act in 1933, and became a very successful agent to top Hollywood stars! He passed away in 1979 at the age of 78.
Important Added Info: Note that this still has been personally autographed (signed) by Zeppo Marx! It has a stamp on the back from Paramount Pictures crediting photographer Gene Robert Richee, and information about Zeppo being in Monkey Business, and it is surely an original vintage 1931 still from that movie.

This autographed item was obtained from the estate of a consignor, who recently passed away. He started collecting mostly lobby cards and stills in the late 1960s, and he hit on the idea that he could get a lot of them signed, because he knew that many of the stars were still alive, but that many of them lived in the Motion Picture Home run by the Academy, and he visited there many times, becoming friendly with a number of the stars there. He also was able to meet other older stars, and acquired most of his signatures in person, although a few were acquired through the mail. He went out of his way to obtain signed items from his favorite films and stars, which included It's a Wonderful Life and Harvey (because he became friends with Jimmy Stewart). He was also friends with Moe Howard and Larry Fine, and he obtained many signatures on items from their films, which he loved, and he also was friends with Margaret Hamilton, Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, and most of the Munchkins, because he especially loved The Wizard of Oz! His family does not have certificates of authenticity for any of his items, but they do have multiple pictures of him with the stars who signed for him, and we are 100% certain that the items we are auctioning from his collection were personally signed by the stars!

As is true of all the signed items we are currently auctioning, we give every buyer 30 days in which to review what they purchased and they can return any item as long as it is within 30 days of the end of the auction. On non-signed items, we give a "lifetime guarantee" on everything we auction, but on signed items, we give the above modified guarantee of 30 days after the auction closes.

Condition: very good.
