American vaudeville comedian, popular for his comic monologues, who built a successful career in British music hall; father of lovely actress June Duprez.

Duprez enjoyed a good film career later in life, making 26 movies (mostly comedies) between 1933 and 1938. It was in his capacity as a comedy draw that he accompanied Will Hay to America for Hey! Hey! USA in 1938, and it was on the ship coming back again afterwards that he suffered a fatal heart attack at the age of fifty-four.
 
This is a fine vintage sepia postcard, nicely signed in dark blue fountain pen ink across the image and dated 5.4.17 by Duprez. In very good condition.
