She replies to a fan who liked her performance in Hello, Dolly!
Typed Letter signed: "Betty Grable", 1 page, 7¼x10½. No place, 1967 July 14. On personal letterhead to Jim Lowe, New York, N. Y. In full: "How very kind of you to write to me and say all those nice things. Believe they were much appreciated. I am so pleased that you enjoyed seeing 'Hello Dolly'. It is so much fun to perform in a show when the audience is as responsive as ours has been. Thank you for being part of that audience. I should be most happy to send you an autographed picture of myself, I am pleased that you want it. [Item not included.] Sincerely". Chosen by the GIs in WWII as their number one "pin-up girl", Betty Grable (1916-1973) appeared in a series of musicals and dramas in the 1940s and early 1950s. Fox publicity insured her legs with Lloyds of London for one million dollars. Grable was married to her second husband, trumpeter-bandleader Harry James from 1943 until they divorced in 1965. Returning to the Broadway stage after her divorce, Grable was successful as a replacement for Carol Channing in Hello, Dolly! Normal mailing folds. Lightly toned at bottom edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
