An Open Letter To
From the desk of Dan
Dear Frank Marshall Figure Lover:
Frank Marshall was one of the best (if not
the best) ventriloquist figure builder. Even though Frank
Marshall was a prolific dummy builder, it's still hard for the average
ventriloquist to acquire
one. And the truth of the matter is...if you DID find one, you'd pay
thousands of dollars to purchase it.
Wouldn't it be great if you could find a Frank Marshall dummy that
you could afford, use to perform with and not worry about how old it
is? Then please keep reading.
A Little Information About Me
Hi, I'm Dan Willinger and most of you know that I collect
ventriloquist dummies...one of the largest privately owned
collection. And, you should know by now that my favorite builder was
Frank Marshall. In fact, I have more Marshall dummies than any other
in my collection (they make up almost half of my
There's something about a Marshall figure that grabs us. I've talked
with many ventriloquists that would love to own a
Frank Marshall figure,
would also love to perform with one, but would be afraid because of
it being such a collectible item.
As you all know I have been a collector of antiques and the fact is
that sometimes you are just not able to find that "Holy Grail" so to
complete your collection a replica is the only alternative.
have been replicas made for just about every antique out there...
Tiffany Lamps , E. Howard & Co clocks, fine antique bronzes like the
famous Frederick Remington's and even Rolex Watches. This fills the
void when the original can't be found or affordable.
The Frank Marshall ventriloquist figure fits into this category.
Every Marshall lover wants to own a NOSEY but they are extremely
rare and in most cases just to expensive.
Frank Marshall and the Nosey Figures
We all know the history of Frank Marshall. He lived next door to
“The Great Lester” who in turned introduced him to the Theodore
Mack. There, Frank started carving ventriloquist figures for Theodore.
Eventually, he went out on his own and became the prolific builder
we know about today. He created so many wonderful characters that
came alive when ventriloquists picked them up.
One of his most
popular figures was the “Nosey”. Here is a quote from Frank's
“Nosey – A smart effect character that will 'click' with any
audience. Complete with movable mouth, turning head, wig and
costumed in blue serge suit as illustrated.”
As you probably know.....the original Jerry Mahoney that Paul
Winchell used was a Nosey figure.

"I am now pleased to be able to solve that problem for you by
offering here what I believe to be the closest Frank Marshall Nosey
replica ever made and done to Frank's exacting specifications."
Ventriloquist Central has produced a Limited Edition
Frank Marshall Nosey
style figure like no other. We have spent months working out the
details of these figures so they would be as close to a Marshall
design as possible.
The head, hands and feet are fiberglass. We worked with a paint expert
to get the perfect "Marshall orange" flesh tone and added that
little something (top secret) to the paint to achieve the Marshall
finish. We found a company that could supply the deep brown glass
eye inserts for the wood eyeballs.
The body is an exact duplicate of Marshall with shaped shoulder board and
spine for the ribs, as well as the lower legs and hands. The body
fabric is old quilting like Marshall used. Marshall's card is inside
the head and inside the body… marked with its number (only six of
these have been made). He really has the Marshall touch with the wig
trimming and styling
The eyes are side to side self centering and slot jaw mouth.
Controls and head stick are exact to Frank Marshall including his
signature chopstick lever. The figure is a full 40"
tall. If Frank were alive today... this is what he would be building.
