[MAE MARSH]. Telegram, unsigned, 1p, 8x6½. New York, New  York, 1917 April 25. On Western Union Telegram form to "Miss Anita Loos, Hollywood Hotel, Hollywood, Calif". In full: "SAW YOUR PICTURE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT WAS WONDERFUL SO GLAD DOUG IS NOT AN INGENUE WHO ARE YOU TRYING TO IMITATE BY NOT WRITING LETTERS LOVE TO YOUR MOTHER AND SELF". "Marsh" written in pencil in unknown hand (possibly Loos') next to typed name. In 1917, ANITA LOOS either wrote or co-wrote five films, A Daughter of the Poor, In Again, Out Again, Wild and Woolly, Down to Earth and Reaching for the Moon. Except for A Daughter of the Poor, DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS starred in all of them -- and he also was a co-writer for Down to Earth. In 1917, Marsh starred in three films, Polly of the Circus, Sunshine Alley and The Cinderella Man (she was paid $2,500 a week for Polly of the Circus and The Cinderella Man). MAE MARSH (1894-1968), born Mary Wayne Marsh, made her film debut in 1910 (Ramona). She made several silents for Mack Sennett and D. W. Griffith, including the major role of little sister, Flora Cameron, in Griffith's The Birth of a Nation (1915) and "The Dear One" in Intolerance: Love's Struggles Throughout the Ages (1916).  After being signed by Samuel Goldwyn in 1916, Marsh, who was billed as "The Whim Girl", made a few films before "retiring" in 1918. She later starred in several Hollywood and British films, before returning to the screen full-time after the Crash of 1929. A favorite of director John Ford, Marsh appeared in several of his films, including The Grapes of Wrath (1940). How Green Was My Valley (1941), My Darling Clementine (1946) and The Quiet Man (1952). Marsh, who also guest starred on two TV series, Bonanza (1959) and Wagon Train (1960), made her last film appearance in 1964's Cheyenne Autumn. Lightly creased with folds. ¾-inch tear at upper right blank edge, torn at right margin, upper and lower left corners chipped away. Lightly soiled. Overall, fragile condition.
