Description:

An original typed letter (dated 13th October 1947) on Savoy Hotel London stationary, clearly signed in ink at the conclusion by Carole Landis.

Certification:

The letter mentions her 1941 film Moon Over Miami in which she played Barbara Latimer. At the time she was in the UK filming "The Brass Monkey" at Alliance Film Studios Twickenham in which she played Kay Sheldon. This turned out to be Carole Landis last film as she died just nine months later in July 1948. The Brass Monkey was not released until 1951. One of a wonderful collection of over 50 celebrity letters all obtained during the late 1940s to early 1950s by a Mr Douglas Squires. He was involved in editing a School / University Film & Theatre Entertainment magazine during this period and wrote to celebrities looking for a contribution of autographs and signed photographs for the magazine. Many of the letters are gracious and detailed replies with many references to helping his project and mentions of their careers at that point in time.
