to Cart
Price: $500.00

Date Published: 1942

Description: 1 page on the inside of a custom-made Christmas card, each two-page spread measuring 6 x 4 inches, no place, no date, circa 1942, with the printed salutation: "A very Merry Christmas and The Happiest New Year. Maria Ouspenskaya." On the inside she wrote: "Dear Anne [Sheridan] After all Bob [Cummings] went through the southern rout (sic) and never hit Chicago. Cheerio. Madame." Having written with a fountain pen, there is slight bleeding to some of the words which does not detract. Fine condition. Very rare.

Comments: Ouspenskaya appeared in her very last movie in 1942 titled "Kings Row" starring Ann Sheridan and Robert Cummings as well as Claude Rains, Ronald Reagan and Judith Anderson.

Thanks for the note. I'm actually in NY for a few days and was hoping to get there but have to head back tomorrow. I've been stopping by the Argosy for over 60 years starting when my mother would take me there after shopping at Bloomingdale's and lunch at a long gone restaurant on the east side of Lexington between 58th and 59th that was torn down to make way for Alexander's department store; that is gone too, of course. - Peter H.
