The longtime actor and writer sends letter to a fan, inviting her to visit him backstage, signs name in black ink
Typed letter signed: "Alexander Kirkland" in black ink. 1 page, 5¾x7¾. May 24, 1934. Addressed to Miss Elaine Wetmore of New York City. In full: "I am sorry I have not been able to acknowledge your letter of March 12th before this. If you have not arranged for the interview, I should be pleased to give you a few minutes of my time, if you will come backstage of the Broadhurst Theatre after a matinee. Sincerely yours". Alexander Kirkland (1901-1986) had 11 prominent film roles between 1931 and 1934, including Almost Married (1932), for which he also wrote the screenplay. He was seen in A Face in the Crowd (1957), and in a few TV appearances. He wrote several short stories published in national magazines. Kirkland was married to famed striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee from 1942 to 1944, although the couple separated after three months. After Gypsy's death in 1970, director Otto Preminger acknowledged paternity of Erik Lee Kirkland, the only child by this marriage. Although Forman Brown stated that Kirkland was the model for a leading character in his early gay novel, Better Angel (1933), Kirkland was married two more times. He owned an art gallery in Palm Beach, Florida, and then retired to an estate in Cuernavaca, Mexico, where he was last heard from in the late 1980s. Normal mailing folds. Slightly toned. Corners rounded. Fine condition.
