Grace McDaniel & Son
Well-known, poignant image of the uniquely and fascinatingly grotesque Grace as she poses with her handsome son. With some concentrated and creative visualization, elements of Elmer's facial attributes can be transposed onto Grace, and one may see the undistorted face beneath. Grace's seeming physical monstrousness is in contrast with the many stories of her sweet and simple nature. This version of the pitchcard gives Elmer's age as 32. Elmer was born June 1, 1917. Both mother and son died in 1958.
