Autograph Letter Signed.
- Silent member of the legendary Marx Brothers comedy team, whose films include "Duck Soup" (1933) and "A Night at the Opera" (1935). Autograph Letter Signed ("Harpo"), 1p, 7¼" X 10½", Cathedral City, CA, n.y. [probably summer 1961]. Addressed to Don (Woolf). Near fine. In this rare example of a Harpo ALS, written on "El Rancho Harpo" letterhead, Harpo writes to an executive with a greeting card publisher, California Artists, which published a series of Christmas cards featuring artwork by movie stars. "Here is my Xmas painting," he writes. "Hope it is not too late for your market. If you use it I would like to send them out as my own personal cards also." Harpo had long been interested in civil rights and the African-American cause, so the closing of this letter is quite appropo: "Would like to stick to my original choice of N.A.A.C.P. to receive royalties, if any." Full letters in Harpo's hand are quite scarce, and one with choice, unusual content such as this doubly so. Accompanied by a modern matte finish printed 8" X 10" photograph depicting the four Marx Brothers at the height of their fame. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
