LOUIS ARMSTRONG (2)

Vintage 8×10 glossy black and white double-weight publicity still from Going Places (1938), boldly signed and inscribed in green fountain pen, “Best wishes/To ‘Del’/From/Louis Armstrong.”  Very good condition, with mounting remnants and paper loss on the reverse side; scattered creasing and handling bends, one bend very lightly breaking the surface emulsion in the background near the right edge; and faint surface impressions from erased handwriting in another hand in the bottom border.  In this still, Armstrong is seen serenading equine friend Jeepers Creepers, with the song of the same title, which became one of Armstrong’s major hits.
