"The serial queen" signs a letter to a fan.
Typed Letter signed: "Grace Cunard", 1 page, 5½x4¾. No place, 1915 October 24. To "Dear friend", in full: "Your letter received and I want to thank you for your very kind expressions. I am very glad indeed that you like my work so well and hope you will continue to follow up my pictures. Shall be more than pleased to send you one of my photos as soon as they are completed. [Item not included.] Yours very sincerely". Grace Cunard (1893-1967), born Harriet Jeffries, made her first silent film in 1910. In an era when studios expected their employees to fill multiple roles, Cunard continued to act while writing 100 screenplays, directing 11 films and producing two, between 1914 and 1921. Acting was her forte, however, and beginning in 1914 she starred in a series of successful serials for Universal: Lucille Love, Girl of Mystery, The Broken Coin and Peg o' the Ring, among others. She acquired the moniker "Queen of the Serials." Her roles diminished as she grew older, but Cunard remained in films, mostly serials, until 1946. Her second marriage, from 1925 until her death, was to stuntman Jack Shannon. Normal mailing folds. Worn. Lightly creased. Mounting residue on verso (no show through). Pinhead size hole at top center. Otherwise, fine condition.
