MARIAN MARSH
Her handwritten guest list for a star-studded Hollywood party
Autograph note, unsigned, 4p (front and verso), 7x10½. Marsh's handwritten, pencil list of Hollywood celebrities, with phone numbers, apparently a guest list. List includes 70 individual guests and couples. Among the many names on the list are Howard Hughes (at one time Marsh's lover), Nigel Bruce, Carl Laemmle, Sr. and Jr., Boris Karloff, Frank Morgan, Louella Parsons, Louis B. Mayer, Josef Von Sternberg, Billie Burke, Janet Gaynor, Cary Grant, Jean Hersholt, Chester Morris, Eddie Buzzell, Virginia Bruce, Mervyn LeRoy, Sally Blane, Lester Matthews, Elizabeth Allan, Polly Ann Young, Miriam Cooper and many more! The note is undated, but certainly dates from the mid-1930s. In 1935 Marsh co-starred with Boris Karloff in The Black Room, and with Peter Lorre in Crime and Punishment (directed by Josef von Sternberg). Rumor linked Marsh with guest Howard Hughes, who had cast her in a small role in Hell's Angels (1930); she always denied that the relationship was amorous. Early sound-era film actress Marian Marsh (1913-2006), born Violet Ethelred Krauth in Trinidad, is best known for her role as Trilby O'Farrell in the 1931 classic, Svengali, opposite John Barrymore. Marsh, who was first signed by Samuel Goldwyn, Jr. in 1928, made her early films as Marilyn Morgan. When the 16-year-old actress was signed by Warner Bros. in 1929, she was renamed Marian Marsh. Known for her doll-like features and wide-eyed innocence, Marsh was a "natural" for damsel-in-distress roles. Her film credits include Five Star Final (1931), The Mad Genius (1931), The Road to Singapore (1931), Beauty and the Boss (1932), Sport Parade (1932), Over the Garden Wall (1934), A Girl of Limberlost (1934), The Black Room (1935), Crime and Punishment (1935), Counterfeit (1936), Come Closer Folks (1936) and House of Errors (1942, her last film). Marsh left Hollywood in 1943. In 1957, she came out of retirement to guest star on an episode of the TV anthology series, Schlitz Playhouse of Stars. The youngest sister of actress Jean Fenwick, Marsh spent her retirement years involved in beautification and charity work in Palm Springs, California. Slightly soiled. Horizontal folds. Second page has separated at center fold. Otherwise, fine condition.
