Norman Taurog 1931 Oscar — “Best Director” for “Skippy” — Only 4th Year of Academy Awards — Youngest Ever Winner for Directing

Fantastic early Oscar for Norman Taurog in the category of “Best Directing” for “Skippy.” Taurog won the directing award at age 32 making him, to this day, the youngest ever recipient. He accepted the accolade on only the fourth Oscar ceremony on 10 November 1932 at the Biltmore Hotel. The movie stars his then 9 year old nephew and Oscar nominee, Jackie Cooper. At the ceremony the young star famously fell asleep on the shoulder of Best Actress nominee, Marie Dressler, who won the award later that evening and had to move the sleeping Cooper to accept it. The child star noted in his autobiography, “Please Don’t Shoot my Dog,” that during filming Taurog threatened to shoot Cooper’s dog to make the young actor cry for a scene. The film based on the comic strip by Percy Crosby, centers around the mischievous youngster, Skippy, who helps a new found friend living in a shantytown. Engraved plaque reads, “Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences / First Award / 1931”. A circular plaque underneath the statue has the words engraved, “Academy First Award / to / Norman Taurog / for Direction / of / ‘Skippy'”. The figure and film reel, composed of gold-plated britannium measuring 10.5″ tall, top the pedestal, bringing the total height to 12″. The pedestal’s diameter measures 5.25″. The award weighs 7.5 pounds. Some expected wear to statue and green felt backing under the pedestal is wearing away around the edge. Overall in very good condition. Sold for $301,973.

Norman Rockwell Oil on Canvas Painting of Richard Nixon — The National Portrait Gallery Study for ”Mr. President (Richard Nixon)”, Painted in 1968

Norman Rockwell oil on canvas painting of Richard Nixon, signed ”Norman / Rockwell” at lower right. Painting is the study for ”Mr. President (Richard Nixon)”, which resides in the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, and was published in the 4 February 1969 issue of ”Look” magazine, captioned ”Weighed, yet buoyed, by the American past and present, Richard M. Nixon, 37th President, faces the future in this Rockwell portrait”. 

Rockwell painted this study in late 1968 of then President-Elect Richard Nixon, a man whose portrait he found ”elusive” but whose features here are unmistakenly Nixon, revealing at the same time both the guardedness and warmth of the 37th President. As the premiere portraitist of the 20th century, one would expect no less from Rockwell. Oil on canvas measures 14” x 11”. Provenance is from Judy Goffman Fine Art of New York, and then subsequently the Charles E. Sigety Collection. Exhibited at the Mississippi Museum of Art in ”Norman Rockwell: The Great American Storyteller” from 2 March-15 May 1988, no. 64. Painting is in very good condition, with a stretcher bar mark along upper edge. Wax lined, with no inpainting. Sold for $125,000.
