Description

    Man on the Flying Trapeze (Paramount, 1935). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). William Claude Dukenfield began his show business career as a juggler on the vaudeville stage. By the age of 21, he was a headliner, touring both in America and overseas. Several years later he took his first bow on Broadway, in a 1906 musical comedy production The Ham Tree. Although he made his silver screen debut in 1915, it wasn't until 1924 that he threw himself into movies in earnest. Success followed success, both on screen and on the radio, where Fields kept up an ongoing, and very popular, feud with Charlie McCarthy. He quickly became one of the iconic personalities of the Golden Age of Hollywood, and is still fondly remembered as one of the finest comedians ever to crack a joke. This exquisite card, picturing Kathleen Howard, Fields, and Mary Brian, from one of Fields's most popular films, is in exceptional condition, without the slightest flaw to lower the grade. For those who appreciate the very best, this card is a must! Mint.
