Description

Popular American entertainer (1879–1935) who cultivated an image as a wisecracking cowboy and earned worldwide renown for his mordant wit and skill at rope tricks. After a successful vaudeville career, including a stint as the one of the star attractions of the Ziegfeld Follies, Rogers made an easy transition to films and became one of the top box-office draws of the late 1920s and early 1930s. His career came to an untimely end when he died in a plane crash in Alaska along with pilot Wiley Post. Vintage matte-finish 8 x 10 photo, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “To J. H. Huber, Will Rogers.” In very fine condition. A terrific example! R&R COA.
