Actor Mary Brian wrote this letter to thank the recipient for a portrait and she couldn't meet with him that morning. Accompanied by original envelope.
Autograph letter signed "Mary Brian". 2 pages, 5 ¼ x 6 ½, on stationery from the Warwick in Philadelphia, Pennsvylvania. In full: "Dear Mr. Cosdon, Thank you so much for the lovely portrait. I shall be very glad to see you but cannot this morning as my time is all taken up before the first show. Thanking you again. Sincerely,". Lightly toned and soiled. Folds and creases (not near signature). Light tear at right edge along fold. Accompanied by: Original envelope, from the Warwick's stationery, addressed to "Mr Waller Cosdon" in Brian's hand. Dated "June 13 1932" in bottom right corner in unknown hand. Lightly toned, soiled and creased. Light tears along flap fold at right and left edges. Pencil notations on flap (no show-through). Otherwise in fine condition. Brian (1908-2002), an American leading lady and one of the best liked actors in Hollywood during the silent age, got her start as Wendy Darling in Peter Pan (1924) after appearing in a beauty contest the previous year. This role landed her a contract with Paramount, and she went on to appear in over 70 films between 1924 and 1927, including a starring role in Paramount's first all-talkie, The Virginian (1929). Brian's career petered out in the mid-1930s, though she did give a memorable performance as W. C. Fields' daughter in The Man on the Flying Trapeze (1935). She retired from film after 1937, making occasional appearances in low budget movies and television, including a recurring role as Janet Archer in Meet Corliss Archer (1954).
