Autograph letter signed "Harry Wiere/Wiere Bros" in body and "Harry Wiere" in postscript. 2 pages, 5¾x8¾. July 31, 1987. In full: "Dear Mr Axelrod enclosed a small photo of bygone days, when Las Vegas was still an innocent child [not included]. You have permission to enlarge this photo to any size you want to. Please send back to the small one. Regards". Postscripted: "Those are slides of some of the families I painted throughout the years. I am looking for a chance to have a showing - maybe you like them enough to contact people in Vegas I would be grateful. If not just send them back Thank you -". 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. Torn neatly from pad at top edge. Folded once and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
