Typed letter signed: "Kathryn" in blue ink, 1p, 7¼x10½. No place, 1976 January 14. On monogrammed stationery to Miss Radie Harris, New York, New York. In full: "It was so nice to have you on the show. You looked beautiful. Your mink coat added such a touch of glamour in the corner, and your brown velvet slacks were really smashing. I loved hearing the stories of the people you know very well in Hollywood. I loved hearing the stories told with your tact and diplomacy. No wonder you've survived so long in that city. I hope to see you on your next trip North. Sincerely". Pencil note (unknown hand) at lower margin: "Did you love Bing Crosby's wife being impressed by minks!" Written the year before Crosby's husband, crooner Bing Crosby, died (October 14, 1977). At the time she signed this letter, Crosby was hosting one of her syndicated TV series. A film starlet of the 1950s (The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, 1957; Anatomy of a Murder, 1959), Kathryn Grant (born in 1933) married film and music idol Bing Crosby in 1957, devoting much of her time to their family and his career until the crooner's death in 1977. In the 1990s she resumed a stage career, returning in a revival of State Fair (1996) to a Broadway stage she first shared with Bing in 1976 (Bing Crosby on Broadway). In addition to stage tours of the U.S., Crosby has performed on the Russian stage in Chekhov's The Seagull and in Hello, Dolly, learning her lines phonetically. RADIE HARRIS (1904-2001) was a long-time entertainment journalist for the "Hollywood Reporter". She wrote her "Broadway Ballyhoo" column from 1940 to the 1990s.
