DARLA HOOD
Signed letter (1974), sending thanks for an article written about her
Typed Letter signed: "Darla", 1 page, 6x8. No place, 1974 March 16. On floral stationery to Jess. In full: "Thank you very much for sending me a copy of the Reporter with the nice write-up about me in it. To tell you the truth, I just thought you decided not to write one on me and was really surprised when I read it and your note. I am enclosing the photos you requested - autographed. [Items not included.] Thank you for your interest and I wish you success with your book. Warmest regards". Darla Jean Hood (1931-1979) was signed by Hal Roach for the Our Gang comedy series at the age of four and made her debut as "Cookie" in 1935's Our Gang Follies of 1936. After starring as Darla until 1941, Hood attempted to launch a solo career, but found her biggest success as a singer in a vocal group, Darla Hood and the Enchanters, which provided background music for films, including 1949's A Letter to Three Wives. The group was organized by Jose E. Granson, who would become her manager and husband. Hood appeared in only a few feature films, including Born to Sing (1942), Calypso Heat Wave (1957) and The Bat (1959), but she was heard on Merv Griffin's radio program and on numerous radio and TV commercials, including the voice of the Mermaid on the Chicken of the Sea commercials. Hood was also a regular on The Ken Murray Show (1950-1951) and made guest appearances on several TV variety shows and on several daytime soap operas. She made her last public appearance at a convention in Chicago before dying of acute hepatitis at a North Hollywood hospital following a relatively minor operation. Corners lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
