Back some time ago I was so excited to show
you a pair of Frank Marshall figures that were used by Walter
Walters Jr. named Woody and Mary Lou. They are great figures and
really are a centerpiece of the Frank Marshall figures in the
Ventriloquist Central Collection. They came to me complete with
the performance stand.
Again my tree was shaken when I learned there was another Woody
figure. I was totally amazed when the pictures came to me
showing this Woody in his original sailor suit even down to his
boatmen's whistle. I didn't know there was another Woody and I
assumed that this one had to be a back up. But upon inspection
of this figure, which is all original, I think this was Walter
Olsen's Woody figure and the one, which I already had in the
Ventriloquist Central Collection, is the back up figure.
This Woody is pictured in a newspaper article, which also came
with the figure, and also pictures Mary Lou and Walter. The head
stick has Walters signature wrap on it too. He has slot jaw,
side to side self centering eyes and a winker on the right eye.
The hands also have little eye loops attached to the inside of
the fingers just like the other two. This I guess facilitated
movement of the hands by Walter.
I am just so pleased that this trio of figures are once again
reunited under one roof.
