1931 Touching photograph of Jim Thorpe as he announces his move from laborer to the Hollywood stage to try and capitalize on his fame. Posed here with his wife and two small children, he was barely removed from his active days on the gridiron when this photo was taken. A nice image in great shape, issued by the West Coast bureau of the International News and with a full paper caption on the back.
