(1893 - 1980) American entertainer, a vaudeville star known for his gravelly voice, battered hat, and big "schnozz". Scarce and superb I.S.P. 10" x 13" b/w, a great side-view image by iconic Hollywood photographer George Hurrell showing Durante mugging for the camera with cigar firmly clamped in his mouth. Boldly inscribed at top left: "To J. H. Baker This is Durante seeing that you fix that pool right - my best from Pal Jimmy Durante". Very light creasing at edges, otherwise very good condition.
