"AUSTRALIAN AIR ACES" and JOHN ALDEN
An Australian trapeze act and an Australian actor
Autograph Sentiment signed: "With Best Wishes/'The Australian Air Aces'/Laruie A. St[?]", and on verso "Sincerely yours/John Alden/1939", 6½x5¼ album leaf. Front side is affixed with five magazine photo faces (b/w, each 1x1¼) and a magazine photo of the act (b/w, 3½3½). THE AUSTRALIAN AIR ACES were not combat pilots, but circus performers in a novelty trapeze act featuring a motorcycle. They were still performing into the 1960s. Identification of individual performers, including the signer here, would require further research. JOHN ALDEN (1908-1962), born Gordon Buchanan, was a teacher in New South Wales who acquired an interest in theater. He traveled to England to improve his craft, performing in small roles with the Old Vic Theatre Company. Returning to Australia, he acted on radio and in a few films (Red Sky at Morning, 1944), but devoted most of his time to promoting Shakespearean plays to schoolchildren and to his own amateur theater company. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
