ALNEY ALBA The stage performer signs a typed letter to founder Daniel Blum, forwarding her publicity materials to appear in a forthcoming Theatre World Autograph letter signed: "Alney Alba," in black ink 1 page, 5x7. No place, May 20, 1953. On personal letterhead. To "Dear Mr. Blum," in full: "This is long over-due…and I am terribly sorry that it took this long while to get everything all filled in. However, here at last am I, after having dug thru several trunks and boxes in storage, to find old programs and dates that were needed. Mr. Forbes took my photographs soon after 'Bernardine' closed…and I only just got them last week. Now he is in the process of getting them done for you…and will send one along in due time for the deadline. He does amazing work with that small camera. I am most pleased to be included in Theatre World! I have every copy since 1945, and think they are wonderful. Many Thanks. Sincerest good wishes." Alney Alba (1904-2000) was an American actress, most known for her stage work. In 1928 she debuted on Broadway in Wanted (1928), later performing in 5 additional plays including Bernardine (1952-1953) where she starred as Ruth Weldy. She made very few on screen appearances, credited to Doorway to Death (1949) and Fright (1956). Theatre World, founded in 1945 by Daniel Blum, is America's oldest annual record of Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theatre, referenced by industry professionals, historians, students and theatre fans worldwide. Until 1998, when a separate nonprofit corporation was established, Theatre World's editorial staff bestowed the prestigious Theatre World Awards for outstanding Broadway and Off-Broadway debuts. Screen World (from 1950) and Dance World (from 1966), administered from the same office, also furnished comprehensive information on those entertainment genres. Multiple mailing folds. Lightly toned. Fine condition.
