Ventriloquist Central Video Collecting Series – Mickey O’Finn | A Frank Marshall Creation

you tube ventriloquist central collection mickey o finn

Bob Fisher was a ventriloquist who was from the Chicago area and performed in the early 1950’s with his figure Mickey O’Finn, which was carved for him by Frank in 1950.

To me when I look at Mickey O’Finn I see a very strong resemblance to his first cousin Danny O’Day. Bob used his Marshall dummy with the utmost of care because this fine Frank Marshall figure looks like it was just delivered from the master today.

    I have a 4X4 picture black and white of Mickey O Finn and Bob Fisher. It is signed Mickey o Flinn and Bob Fisher. I am sure taken in early 50s. Is there any value to this picture?
