[nice copy, minimal shelfwear to book; jacket lightly soiled on rear panel, with a touch of wear to the spine extremities]. (B&W photographs) Eddie Cantor's autobiography, in which "he retraces the steps that have carried him from a dingy one-room apartment on New York's lower East Side through a thousand stage doors and out into the glow of the footlights and the applause and laughter that have so long been his due. [The book] is filled with anecdotes and stories about Eddie, his wonderful wife Ida, and their five-girl family, as well as Eddie's friends, the now fabled names of show business: George Jessel, Al Jolson, Irving Berlin, Sophie Tucker, George M. Cohan, Ruth Etting, Will Rogers, Ethel Merman, Jack Benny, and many others." A very nice copy of a book that is notoriously prone to wear.
