Rudy Vallée signs a check for $4.31 to pay the California Water and Telephone Company.
Check signed: "Rudy Valleé", 8x3. Hollywood, California, 1947 August 21. Check No. 4538, drawn on his Rudy Vallee Broadcast account at the California Bank, Hollywood-Vine Office, payable to California Water and Telephone Company for $4.31. Stamped endorsement on verso. In the year he signed this check, Valleé appeared in two feature films: The Bachelor and The Bobby-Soxer and The Sin of Harold Diddlebock. The previous year, he had married his fourth wife, the former Eleanor Norris, who would later write The Vagabond Lover (from the title of one of Rudy's films), an affectionate account of their life of over 30 years together. From the mid-1920s to mid-1950s, singer and actor Rudy Vallée (1901-1986) enjoyed a successful career on radio (where he hosted a popular variety show from 1929), in movies, in Broadway musicals and with a solo nightclub act. The first singer to be called a "crooner", he was known for carrying a small megaphone. He made a fine comeback in the Broadway hit How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying (1961). Bisected by vertical fold, not at signature. Bank stamps on front and verso and cancellation holes, not at signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
