Ventriloquist Central Collection Video Series – Early 1940’s Frank Marshall Figure

you tube ventriloquist central collection frank marshall early 1940 figure

Here’s a video of a very nice Frank Marshall ventriloquist figure. This is a full size figure and dates from the early 1940’s.

He has slot jaw, upper lip and rolling eye winker. What is unusual is that the eyes in this figure are glass and therefore the rolling eye is the glass color. The eye never appears to ever have been painted for when it rolls down closed, it is so close in the eye socket that paint would just rub off in the process of rolling down.

Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to:
