PATSY RUTH MILLER and LILA LEE
Notes of two actresses who also had a connection with literature; Miller won three O'Henry Awards for her short stories while Lee was the mother of Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatist James Kirkwood.
Autograph Note signed: "To Pearl -/Sincerely,/Patsy Ruth Miller" and, on verso, "To/Pearl/as usual!/Lila/1932", 4x6. Dated September 23, 1932 in unknown hand on both sides; someone has also written "Lila Lee" under Lee's signature on verso. In 1932, Miller, who had retired from the screen in 1931, was seen in one feature film, The Thalians. She would make one last film, Quebec, in 1951. Lee was seen on the big screen in seven feature films in 1932: Unholy Love, Radio Patrol, War Correspondent, Exposure, The Night of June 13th, False Faces and Officer Thirteen.PATSY RUTH MILLER (1904-1995) had her most famous screen role as Esmerelda opposite Lon Chaney's Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923). She had an even more successful second career as a writer of radio scripts and short stories, winning three O'Henry awards for the latter. Lila Lee (1901-1973) was brought to Hollywood in 1918 by Jesse Lasky. Her first film was The Cruise of the Make Believe followed by Cecil B. deMille's Male and Female in 1919. She costarred with Rudolph Valentino in Blood and Sand (1922) and with Lon Chaney (Sr.) in The Unholy Three (1930). Highly publicized illnesses resulted in fewer offers. Lee appeared in only three movies after 1937 and a few television appearances in the 1950s. Her son, James Kirkwood, won the 1976 Pulitzer Prize in Drama for A Chorus Line. Slightly creased. ¼-inch tears at upper blank edge and lower right corner. Irregular right edge from removal from bound book. Overall, fine condition.
