After supplying musical interludes and playing supporting roles in westerns starring William “Hopalong Cassidy” Boyd, Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Johnny Mack Brown and other screen cowboys, Eddie Dean (1907-1999) was given his own series of western at economy-minded PRC under prolific producer Robert Tansey. Teamed with the singinging cowboy — who had one of the best voices of all the singing cowboys — was newcomer Alfred LaRue (1917-1996). Following his appearances in three Cincolored outings with Dean, the black-garbed, whip-slinging cowboy soon developed a loyal following and went on to star in 18 oaters between 1947 and 1952. Both are still fondly remembered among fans of the genre. This original, 11″ x 14″ lobby from their first film together, Song of Old Wyoming (1945), features both cowboys in the scene with leading lady Jennifer Holt and was hand-signed in person by both Dean and LaRue. Accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity guranteeing the validity of the signatures for life.
