CLAUDE RAINS
Autograph letter to his daughter on an artistic postcard, signed "C C"
Autograph Letter signed: "Love/CC", 5¾x4 color picture postcard. Postcard image is a reproduction of painting by Paul Cezanne. West Chester, Pennsylvania, 1958 March 22. Addressed in his hand to "Jenni Rains/Bennington College/Bennington/Vermont. Two 3-cent US stamps affixed, with his handwritten instructions: "air mail". In full: "Worst snow in century. Have been snowed in for days reading, 'The Reformation' - a heavy tome on one's chest at night. How is everything with you? Did you get license plate with [1 word illegible]". From the estate of Claude Rains.Rains (1889-1967), who played the title role in The Invisible Man (1933), was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor in 1939 (as the "bought" Senator Paine in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington), 1943 (Inspector Louis Renault in Casablanca), 1944 (title role in Mr. Skeffington) and 1946 (Ingrid Bergman's Nazi husband in Notorious). This letter was written to his daughter Jennifer, who had grown up with Rains and her mother, Frances Propper (Rain's third of 6 wives) on a farm near West Chester. When she became an actor like her father, Jenni changed her name to Jessica to avoid confusion with another actress. Rains signed his letters to his daughter in a variety of ways, including "Fa Fa" and "Pie Face". "C C" must have had a special meaning to her too. Lightly worn at corners. Cancellation mark touching "J" of Jenni. Otherwise, fine condition.
