Otherwise, fine condition. Esther Muir (1907-1995) was a statuesque actress with (often underutilized) comic skills. Prominent roles included So This is Africa (1933) and Misbehaving Husbands (1941). She is probably best remembered opposite Groucho Marx in A Day at the Races (1937). Their classic exchange in the film is forever remembered: Muir: "Closer, hold me closer." Marx: "If I hold you any closer I'll be in back of you." Envelope Slightly soiled and frayed at opening on top edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
