HOWARD HUGHES and JEAN PETERS
Hughes discusses a haircut he is planning for that night, jokingly quipping: "Tonight's the night for Sampson to lose his strength". Hughes then asks if Peters would like to watch a movie featuring Sammy Davis, and Peters replies: "No - I definately do not see Samie Davis at this hour"
Autograph letter signed: "Howard", "J", 1 page, 8½x14 (front and verso). No place, no date, but circa 1964. Hughes' letter begins: "My Dearest". In full: "Tonight's the night for Sampson to lose his strength. The barber is going to sleep early and come at 2:30. This will allow four hours for the and permit him to drive directly to the airport when he finishes, have breakfast there, and catch his plane right on schedule. I slept late so as to be rested and I am sure I will have the necessary strength (of muscle and character0. I will have him be as quiet as possible but avoid any operation which you mught classify as furtive. I love you so very very much. I will be thinking of you and how lovely you look when you are asleep. Of course I will expect you when it is most convenient from 10:30 to 11:00. There is no reason for the barber to have any affect on our plans. I will try to have a picture selected which will not be too awful". Peters' letter, written beneath her husband's, begins: "Dear Heart". In full: "That will be fine; I will come in at 10:30. Don't worry about me when your barber comes; I will not hear him or be disturbed. I love you". Hughes and Peters have penned several notes on the front and verso: H:"There are simply no movies that I would see. However, to avoid the black octopus-eye, with your permission, I will tune "Crash Dive", but have no desire to inflict the entire picture on you only a half-hour or so. There is nothing you would like, with possible exception of Ann Lucastia - Sammy Davis - Eartha Kitt. Would you like that?", J: "No - I definately do not see Samie Davis at this hour", H: "It runs from 11:30 to 1:45 and I found one starting in a half hour that sounds a little more snappy" H: "1,000 No's. - only if for your", H: "If we start Back Street, we just about have to finish it", H: "American commercial. I thot maybe you were just thinking of me", H: "Well the part you don't like is what will be removed", H: "When you rejected Lucastia, I thot you were doing it for me!", H: "Robt Ryan, in a 2-bit beard!". The relationship between business tycoon HOWARD HUGHES (1905-1976) and actress JEAN PETERS (1926-2000), which was marked with strange meeting rituals and periods of little or no direct contact, was anything but normal, yet their sincere devotion to each other endured throughout their 14-year marriage. The dashing aviator and movie mogul had met Peters in 1946, when she had come to Hollywood as a prize for winning the Miss Ohio state title. Hughes was intrigued by Twentieth Century-Fox's rising star, who made her film debut in 1947. Following 11 years of sporadic dating, the two were married in a small mining town outside of Las Vegas on January 12, 1957. Hughes, known for working odd hours into the night, preferred to relay his business and personal directives via memos and hand-written notes rather than the spoken word, and he would communicate with his wife in this same manner. They jotted notes about planned meetings, films, business and opinions in general. In 1964, Mr. and Mrs. Hughes lived at the fashionable address of 1001 Bel Aire. However, their marital arrangements included separate living quarters, and Jean often was required to make an appointment with Hughes' aides in order to see her husband. By this time in their marriage, the couple was known to usually spend a half hour together after 11 p.m. before retiring to their separate bedrooms. In November 1966, Howard Hughes confined himself to a hotel penthouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 1970, after having spent most of her married life with Hughes in separate accommodations, Jean Peters Hughes was granted a divorce. Fold in center. Light surface creases. Fine condition.
