The comic actor much loved in his time has signed and illustrated this sepia toned bust length photograph showing his characteristic expression. Catlett has drawn a black cat with a large red bow below his full signature, "Walter Catlett, Hollywood Oct. 30, 1937." The sketch is a play on his name. Catlett was a comedic actor appearing in many movies as a flustered scatterbrain but best known for his roles in "Yankee Doodle Dandy" and "Bringing Up Baby." His face is more recognizable than his name. Catlett was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960. Our photograph measures 7 1/4 x 7 1/2. Condition: tape stains on verso with minor docketting; in overall very good condition.
