PAUL KELLY (1899-1956), born in Brooklyn, New York) was an American actor with almost 170 movies and TV shows to his credit between 1911 and 1956. Kelly started acting on stage at age 7 and, by age 11, was acting on the sunlit movie stages of Vitagraph Studios. He had a total of 22 Broadway appearances between 1911 and 1951, with his first important role in Seventeen 1918. Kelly got his first starring movie role in The New Klondike (1926) and assured his star status the next year in Broadway Through a Keyhole (1933). Kelly's acting career was briefly interrupted in the 1920s, after he was convicted of killing fellow actor Ray Raymond... in a fistfight! Kelly served two served in prison, but it was little more than a hiccup in his acting career. He continued to receive roles until his death and even married Raymond's widow as his second wife. MARY BOLAND (1880-1965) made 11 Broadway appearances, starting in 1907, before making her first film in 1915. Dissatisfied with the acting possibilities of silent movies, she returned full-time to the stage in 1920. Her biggest stage success was in The Cradle Snatchers (1925-1926), as a woman who left her husband for a young lover - acting newcomer Humphrey Bogart! Returning to films in character roles after 1930, she found success in Ruggles of Red Gap (1935), The Woman (1939) and Pride and Prejudice (1940). File holes at left. Fine condition.
