Autograph Note signed: "Most Sincerely/To Elsie/Gloria Dickson", 6x4½ album leaf. GLORIA DICKSON (1917-1945) seemed headed for stardom when she made her first Warner Bros. film, They Won't Forget, in 1937. Her life on and off screen, including three brief marriages, were followed closely by the entertainment press, and she made several magazine covers. In 1943, in her next to last film, Crime Doctor's Strange Cases, she played the wife of a man who was constantly setting fires by failing to douse his cigarettes. In 1945, she died in a fire in her Los Angeles home, started by a burning cigarette. Harry Carp, who employed the stage name of Myrus, was a renowned "mentalist" with a remarkable gift for answering questions posed by members of the audience. His wife, Melba Merriam, who went by Elsie Myrus when acting as his assistant, collected autographs from celebrities attending his performances. This rare autograph was part of her collection. Binding holes at left edge. Lightly toned around edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
