"Check & Double Check”
Grace G. Drayton
Offered for sale in this listing is an early 1930s vintage framed print, “Check & Double Check”, drawn by Grace G. Drayton, the artist well-known for her Campbell's Kids illustrations.
"Check & Double Check”
Beginning in the late 1920s, Charles Correll and Freeman Gosden, two white radio actors, starred in a popular radio program – 'Amos 'n Andy'. The show ran as a nightly radio serial from 1928 until 1943, as a weekly situation comedy from 1943 until 1955, and as a nightly disc-jockey program from 1954 until 1960. A television adaptation ran on CBS-TV from 1951 until 1953, and continued in syndicated reruns from 1954 until 1966. Over the years, the program was controversial in several areas, but it withstood the protests, and the characters remained popular. Audiences believed that the characters they loved were African-Americans.
In 1930, RKO Pictures brought the two men to Hollywood to make a feature film. It was titled “Check & Double Check”, a catchphrase from the radio show. RKO commissioned Mrs. Drayton to draw the Scottish Terriers, printed the image on special paper and distributed them as promotional items for the film.
The film's cast included a mix of white and black performers, including Duke Ellington and his orchestra. Gosden and Correll played Amos and Andy in blackface.
Although profitable for RKO, the film pleased neither critics, the public, nor Gosden and Correll themselves, and briefly became RKO's biggest box-office hit prior toKing Kongbefore falling off rapidly. Audiences were curious to see what their radio favorites looked like and were expecting to see African-Americans instead of white men in blackface. RKO ruled out any plans for a sequel.
This piece has a simple black frame, no matting, a saw-tooth hanger and is in EXCELLENT VINTAGE CONDITION -remarkable for an 80 year old print.
Underneath the illustration of the terriers is:
The Artist's signature/

ADDITIONAL CONDITION INFORMATION
Q: Is the print perfectly smooth under the glass, or are there rumples, dimples, creases, etc. in the print? Due to the reflection of the glass, I can't tell.
These Drayton pups are printed on a background which resembles very faint "aged" newsprint columns (too small to read - just a facsimile of newsprint I think, but the column "lines" suggest folds although it obviously has NOT been folded). I also see one small area 1/4 inch long which may be a crease or fingernail mark.
Q: What are the dimensions?
Outside dimensions - width is 13 3/8 inches & height is 10 3/4 inches.
Inside dimensions - width is 12 7/8 inches & height is 9 3/4 inches. Width of frame is about 1/2 inch.
A nice vintage collectible for the Scottish Terrier lover – great gift!
