Partly printed bank form permitting his sister in law to enter his bank vault
Document signed: "Edmund S. Low", 1 page, 5½x4¾. Hollywood, California, 1929 February 21. Partly printed form from the Safe Deposit Department, Bank of Italy, Hollywood, filled out to authorize Kitty Tashman to enter Lowe's safe deposit box (#116) to deposit 100 shares of Southern California Edison stock. Autograph note on verso (same date), signed "Kitty Tashman", witnessed by a bank employee, attests to the deposit of the shares. American actor Edmund Lowe (1890-1971) worked as a teacher before joining a stock company in Los Angeles, California. He debuted on the silver screen in 1915's The Wild Olive, the first of over 120 film appearances, and made his Broadway debut in 1917's The Brat, the first of his 12 plays on the Great White Way. He became a popular leading man in elegant roles, but made a name for himself as the hellraising Sergeant Quirt in the 1927 film version of What Price Glory? This movie led to several sequels with Lowe and Victor McLaglen as Quirt's rival Flagg, with their signature taglines "Sez you? Sez me!" Lowe made his break into television in 1949; he's probably best known in this medium for his role as David Chase in Front Page Detective (1951). Lowe, who was gay, had a marriage of convenience with lesbian actress Lilyan Tashman from 1925 until her early death in 1934. Kitty Tashman was Lilyan's sister. Toned and creased. Ink stamp on verso light show through. Mailing fold through center. Corners creased and worn. Nail size holes near mailing fold. Multiple in smears. Otherwise, fine condition.
