GUY BOLTON HANDWRITTEN LETTER SIGNED, PLAYWRIGHT, MUSICAL COMEDIES

$195.00

Description

Guy Reginald Bolton (1884-1979) Handwritten Letter Signed, "Yours, Guy", 7 x 9, in green ink, on his personal letterhead, January 8th, by the Anglo-American playwright and writer of musical comedies. Born in England and educated in France and the US, he trained as an architect but turned to writing. Bolton preferred working in collaboration with others, principally the English writers P. G. Wodehouse and Fred Thompson and in the U.S. George and Ira Gershwin and Oscar Hammerstein II. In part: "...I would like to have those scripts of "Angel In Paris". Would it be convenient to drop or send items to the Hotel Croydon...where I stay when I'm in town? O, if better, Miriam Howell's office...I'm well and busy...." He is probably referring to the 1937 film "Angel", with Marlene Dietrich, Herbert Marshall, and Melvyn Douglas. Miriam Howell (1899-1972) was his agent in New York. Nice showbiz letter by one of the great playwrights. In fine condition.
