About this Item

This amiable American leading man of the late 1930s (best known for "The Story of Alexander Graham Bell") appeared in dozens of films well into the 1990s; he became more popular than ever late in life, appearing in "Trading Places" (1983) and winning an Oscar for the 1985 film "Cocoon." Partly-printed TDS, 1p, 9" X 3", Hollywood, CA, 1936 August 8. Near fine. Pale orange check drawn on the California Bank, typed out to "CASH" in the amount of $150.00 and boldly signed in black ink by Ameche. Normal bank perforation cancellations (not touching signature). An attractive piece from quite early in Ameche's career -- his film debut had only occurred the previous year. It wasn't until 1939 that his most famous role as Alexander Graham Bell would make him a household name -- and actually make the name "ameche" synonymous with the telephone, as in "You're wanted on the ameche!" Accompanied by an 8" X 11" reproduction of an early head-and-shoulders caricature of a smiling young Ameche. Bookseller Inventory # 40809
