Helen Hayes writes to a friend letting her know that all went well in New York.
Autograph Letter Signed: "Helen Hayes", 2p, 6¼x7¾. [New York], 1944 June 13. On her personal imprinted stationery. To Mrs. Ramsdell, in full: "This is just to report that I reached N.Y. on the dot and made my dinner engagement on time. It was well that I did for I found the usually robust and hearty Admiral looking a little green around the gills. Stage fright. Having to be the cavalier during dinner was, I think, the only thing that kept him from sagging altogether. I feel greatly enriched for having got to know you a little. Please call me when you come to New York. After July 1st my phone will be Suffern 701- but there will always be someone taking messages at Nyack 1010. I'd like so much to see you again. I think you're fun and a darling-Gratefully". Hayes (1900-1993) won the 1931-1932 Academy Award for Best Actress for the title role in The Sin of Madelon Claudet, her first film. After starring in Vanessa, Her Love Story in 1935 for M-G-M, Hayes returned to Broadway and enjoyed the greatest triumph of her stage career in the title role of Victoria Regina (1935-1938). She earned the sobriquet, First Lady of the American Stage, winning Tonys for Happy Birthday (1947), the first year the award was given, and for Time Remembered (1958). A frequent TV guest star from the 1950s to the 1980s, Hayes made occasional films, such as Anastasia (1956) and Airport (1970), winning a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for the latter. Fold creases through "e" of Helen. Paper clip impression at upper left. Lightly toned at blank edges.
