The actress, Mary Pickford's sister, types and signs a letter to a fan apologizing for not having a picture to send her. A rare signature!
Typed Letter signed: "Lottie Pickford". 1 page, 4¾x7¾. Santa Barbara, California. 1915, June 18. On personal letterhead to: "My dear Miss Calvert,", in full: "Received your letter and was very glad to hear that you enjoy my work in 'The Diamond from the Sky' and I hope you will follow it. I am very sorry to say but at the present time I haven't a picture left. I expect a supply in very soon and when they arrive I will mail one to you immediately. Sincerely,". Lottie Pickford (1895-1936), born Charlotte Smith, was born in Canada one year after his sister Mary. Like her acting brother Jack, she adopted the name of Pickford after Mary made it famous. Lottie Pickford was an actor herself, debuting on stage with Mary in The Silver King (1900). Her relationship with Mary was always strained, and was not helped when Lottie's first starring role was as a prostitute in The House of Bondage (1914), a movie which did not mesh well with Mary Pickford's image as "America's Sweetheart". Mary, said to consider Lottie untalented and unattractive, discouraged studios from hiring her. She had 86 film credits, but all but 8 of them were shorts. Lottie was known for throwing wild parties. Three of her four marriages ended in divorce, and her daughter was raised by her mother. The three Pickford siblings, Mary, Lottie and Jack, made only one film together, Fauchon, the Cricket (1915), a long lost film recently rediscovered by the British Film Institute. Lottie Pickford's last film was in brother-in-law Douglas Fairbanks' vehicle, Don Q Son of Zorro (1925). She died of a heart attack at age 43, and is buried in the Pickford family plot at Forest Lawn Cemetery, Glendale, California. Toned. Left edge frayed from binding. Bottom left corner lightly creased and worn. Mounting residue on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
