Famed Cotton Club orchestra leader CAB CALLOWAY (1907-1994), one of the premier entertainers in jazz, is best known for his renditions of "Minnie the Moocher" and "St. James Infirmary Blues" and for his "Hi di Ho" delivery. Calloway also displayed his talents in several films, including The Big Broadcast (1932), The Singing Kid (1936), Manhattan Merry-Go-Round (1937) and 1943's Stormy Weather, which also starred Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, Lena Horne and Dooley Wilson. COLLEEN MOORE (1900-1988) was the quintessential "flapper" of the 1920s in silent and early talking films (as in It Must Be Love, Ella Cinders, both 1926). Playing against type in her last starring role, she portrayed Hester Prynne in The Scarlet Letter (1934). Moore returned to the screen in 1961, playing a supporting role in a remake of one of her most memorable screen roles, 1933's The Power and the Glory. A canny investor, Moore authored three books, including How Women Can Make Money in the Stock Market. As a child, Moore had loved doll houses. In 1928, drawing on her Hollywood wealth, she began an ambitious project to create a fantastic one. With the help of set designer/architect Horace Jackson, interior decorator Harold Grieve (who had decorated Moore's home), and 700 craftsmen, she created by 1935 an 8 cubit foot fairy castle containing 2000 miniatures at a price of $500,000. The castle is a popular exhibit at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry. Slightly soiled, lightly shaded at upper and lower margins. Ink note on both sides at lower margin (no show through to other side). Binding holes at right margin from removal from book. Otherwise, fine condition.
