Eileen and the large kangaroo

March 7, 2018

 Thank you to Eileen Mager for adopting the large kangaroo.  Frank Marshall made this great dummy, as well as two other kangaroos (one of which is a joey), for famed ventriloquist Clifford Guest.  Guest used the kangaroos on The Ed Sullivan Show and a couple of other dates.  Guest then left the kangaroos at Frank Marshall's studio.  Frank told Guest he should sell them all to Mr. Berger.  In one letter, Clifford states that "...one hasn't been used at all."  From additional notes, it appears likely that the unused kangaroo is this one. This special dummy has a winker and moving wooden eyes. Mr. Berger got all three kangaroos in 1958.  You can see them on display in the W.S. Berger Memorial Building.
