1937 "A Day at The Circus With Wallace Beery" Photograph

Here is a photograph that is from 1937. It is of actor Wallace Beery, his adopted Daughter Carol Ann and a Circus Peanut & Cracker Jack Vendor. Wallace chooses a box of Cracker Jack and Carol chooses some circus peanuts. Note the stack of Question Mark Mystery Club Cracker Jack boxes! The vendor is wearing a Baby Ruth candy advertising jacket. They are all under a tent.

Wallace Beery was born on April 1, 1885 and died on April 15, 1949 (at age 64)
Among many things, he had appeared in 200 movies over a 36 year span.

The back of the photograph is marked as follows:

"A Day at The Circus With Wallace Beery"
PEANUTS? OF COURSE... What would a circus be without peanuts. Wallace Beery and his adopted daughter, Carol Ann, play hooky to spend a day at the Al G. Barnes and Sells-Floto Circus and don't miss a bet. They went in for everything from pink lemonade to spun sugar. Wally, who ran away from home when he was fourteen to join the famous old Forepaugh-Sells show as a "Bull Man", hasn't missed a circus in twenty-five years. He took a day off from his new starring Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer picture "Good Old Soak" (1937 movie) directed by J. Walter Ruben and produced by Harry Rapf, to spend a day with his old circus pals, many of whom are still with the big top.

Doesn't Carol Ann know that there are peanuts in Cracker Jack? Not only that, but it has a toy surprise in every box. Silly girl.

I don't know if I've ever seen a movie with Wallace Berry. :|p I'll check Netflix, now that I'm in the mood for an old classic.

Thanks for sharing this Ron.
