FRED ALLEN

FRED ALLEN. Vintage 1930s 8×10 glossy black and white NBC publicity portrait of Allen and his wife and co-star, Portland Hoffa, boldly inscribed in black fountain pen, “For Sandord/From that/other duck/Fred Allen, “ and additionally signed and inscribed, “To Sanford/Tally-Ho!/Portland.” Very good condition, with noticeable bends at the top right corner and in the background above Allen’s head, slightly detracting from overall appearance. The photograph captures the couple at the height of their popularity as stars of the long-running radio comedy, “Allen’s Alley.”
