Carney, Uncle Don
Terry and Ted on the Trail of the Secret Formula by Uncle Don
NY: General Baking Company, 1936

Octavo. Unpaginated [16 pp]; 9 color and 1 b/w illustrations. Stapled illustrated wraps. VG. Some even toning to interior pages. Promotional ephemera from the General Baking Company which was a tie-in to the Uncle Don radio show, broadcast on NY radio station WOR between 1928 and 1947. Uncle Don Cagney (Howard Rice) was central to an urban myth which held that he had an open mic incident where he said "There, that ought to hold the little bastards", This was later proven to be untrue. This scenario, a host inadvertently talking into an open microphone at the end of a live show, was used as a comeuppance for lead character Lonesome Rhodes in the fictional film drama, A Face in the Crowd. Amplifying the urban legend, a scene in that film shows two real Variety pressmen handling an issue of Variety with a headline comparing Rhodes to Uncle Don.
