Jessel, George. Eddie Cantor, intro.
Hello Momma. Typed Manuscript, Presentation Copy From Author. [Pre-publication]. 1945. 
​​9 x 11.5 inches. 85 single-sided pages. Typed manuscript (copy), eighty-five single sided pages, no publisher, no date, with chapter headings and introduction (foreword) by Eddie Cantor at front. Original paper wraps, worn at edges and spine, some foxing, brass clasps inside margins, inscribed by author on cover wrapper “To Julian - with great affection - George Jessel - 45”. One of a kind item. George Jessel (1898-1981), American actor, singer, songwriter and film producer, best known for his comedy. Most famous for his comedy skit ‘Hello Mama’. Julian Johnson (inscription) was chief story editor for Fox Studios 1920s-1930s. “Jessel’s ‘mama’ routine, unsurprisingly taken from his real life, reflected te special relationship in Jewish life between mother and son, revealed the strategies Jewish sons used in reviewing their lives for their mothers, gently mocked the mothers in a loving way, and reflected the audiences yearning for such a relationship themselves. In vaudeville, the Jewish mother was the very soul of warmth, kindness, and love. She came to symbolize the love that was missing in so many lives of those in the audience. Jessel had a more serious side, too. He starred in The Jazz Singer on Broadway and never forgave Al Jolson for, as he saw it, stealing the part in what would be a historic film.” [-Epstein, Story of Jewish Comedians in America]. Hello Mama was used in numerous art forms throughout the years including vinyl records, books, television and film.   DP26656   $100.00
