William Demarest was a character movie actor from the 1920s through the 1960s, who had an incredibly successful career, going from one fine movie to another! His most successful roles were in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, The Jolson Story (nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film), It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World, and the Preston Sturges movies: Sullivan's Travels, The Lady Eve, The Palm Beach Story, The Miracle of Morgan's Creek, Hail the Conquering Hero, and The Great McGinty. He played Uncle Charlie on TV's "My Three Sons" (replacing William Frawley, who had played "Bub", who had passed away). Demarest passed away in 1983 at the age of 91.
Important Added Info: Note that the REPRODUCTION still has been personally autographed (signed) by William Demarest and the note has his initials (B.D. for "Bill Demarest")! They come with Mr. Demarest's humorous business card that says "RETIRED" and several other humorous notations (see our images). He wrote a long inscription on the repro that says "I am now 89 years old. Don't let anyone tell you that the last half is the best half."! Our consignor is a longtime dealer who acquired this signed item among many other purchases in his inventory, and he does not have a certificate of authenticity, but we believe the signature to likely be authentic.

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.

Condition: very good.
