Rare Signed Photo of Ralph Rainger With Bars of Music

RAINGER, Ralph  (1901-1942).  One of Hollywood’s most prolific composers of music principally for films. Remembered for his hit “Blue Hawaii” and “Thanks For The Memories” which won him an Academy Award and adopted by Bob Hope and became his signature song.  In 1934 Rainger wrote “Love In Bloom” which became Jack Benny’s theme song.  Rainger died very young, his life cut short tragically in a plane crash. He was in an American Airlines DC-3 that was involved in a mid-air collision with a U.S. Army Corps Bomber.  Photograph, 8"x10”, B&W, produced in 1934 by Paramount Productions.  Rainger has written five bars of music from “Love In Bloom”. In addition he has inscribed and signed this photograph dating it “April 18, 1938”.  In fine condition. Photos of Rainger with bars of music from such a famous song are rarely seen. Excellent condition
