HARRY WIERE (1906-1992, born in Berlin, Germany) was one-third of the comedy trio The Wiere Brothers, which included his brothers HERBERT WIERE (1908-1999, born in Vienna, Austria) and SYLVESTER WIERE (1909-1970, born in Prague, Bohemia, Austria-Hungary, now the Czech Republic). The three started performing on stage in 1922 and made their American debut in 1935. Highly talented, the Wiere Brothers worked comedy into an act that included singing, dancing, acrobatics and playing a myriad of instruments. They were headliners in theatres and night clubs, but Hollywood didn't utilize their talents very often. Highlights of their film careers include cameos in the Bob Hope and Bing Crosby "Road" comedy Road to Rio (1947) and Elvis Presley's Double Trouble (1967), their last film appearance. They also had their own TV series, Oh! Those Bells (1962). The Wiere Brothers went into semi-retirement after Sylvester's death. Lightly toned. Light show-through from both sides, which touches handwriting but not signatures. Impressions on page 1 from another letter, which touch handwriting but not signature. Otherwise in fine condition.
