Baltimore, 1914 November 15.On stationery imprinted: "Nixon & Zimmerman/Academy of Music Co./The New Academy of Music, Baltimore".To Charles [Dillingham].In full: "Telegram received-dont kid me-If I had been in your place I certainly would have protected you-You were the one who objected their going with me and you personally told me if your show played Amsterdam, it would be allright (sic). I could have been reached any minute". During the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893, FLORENZ ZIEGFELD, Jr. (1867-1932) managed Sandow, the strong man. In 1896, he turned to theatrical management. His promotion of a French beauty, Anna Held, using press releases about her milk baths, brought her fame and set a pattern of star-making through publicity. Held and Ziegfeld were married from 1897 until they divorced in 1913. In 1907, Ziegfeld produced his first revue, The Follies of 1907, modeled on the Folies-Bergère of Paris but less risqué. The New York revue's combination of semi-nudity, pageantry and comedy was repeated successfully for 23 more years in the Ziegfeld Follies, until the Great Depression ended the annual spectacles. CHARLES DILLINGHAM (1868-1934) managed the Globe Theatre (1910-1934), the Hippodrome (1914-1923) and owned the Century Theatre with Ziegfeld. Lightly creased. Minor stains in blank areas. Overall, fine condition.
