NORMA TALMADGE
Handwritten letter authorizing her attorney to access her safe deposit box
Autograph Letter signed: "Norma Talmadge", 1 page, 6¼x7½. No place, no date, but ink receipt stamp on verso is dated July 23, 1934. To Bank of America, Hollywood, CaliforniaIn full: "I would like to have Mr. Carpenter, my attorney, and Mr. Dalton, or his assistant open my safe deposit box in your bank. Sincerely". Actress Norma Talmadge (1893-1957) began her film career in the 1910 Vitagraph film, The Household Pest, and she would go on to appear in a number of features for the New York City-based studio before briefly signing with D.W. Griffith, for whom her sister, Constance, was working. In 1916, Talmadge met and married Joseph Schenck, and the two became partners in their own film company. Their studio's first film, Panthea, was a tremendous hit, and the couple moved the production company to Hollywood. Over the next few years, Talmadge would star in several other hits, including The Wonderful Thing (1921), The Eternal Flame (1922) and The Song of Love (1923). By 1928, however, her popularity had begun to wane, and Talmadge was unable to make a successful transition from the silents to "talkies". She divorced Schenck on April 4, 1934 and married George Jessel just nineteen days later. Jessel had a radio show at the time, and Talmadge was added to the cast. When the program did not help her career, she divorced Jessel in 1939. In 1927, Talmadge had accidently begun a tradition when she stepped into wet cement in front of Graumann's Chinese Theater, becoming the first star of many to leave a lasting impression in front of the landmark. Henry Dalton was employed in the bank's safe deposit department. Lightly creased. Multiple mailing folds. Ink stamp on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
