RUDY VALLÉE and SELMA DIAMOND
Rudy Vallée signs a check to Selma Diamond for $390.70 on September 17, 1945.
Partly Printed Check signed: "Rudy Vallée", 8½x3. Hollywood, 1945 September 17. Drawn on Vallée's "Drene Show" checking account, payable to Selma Diamond for $390.70. Endorsed on verso: "Selma Diamond". From the mid-1920s to mid-1950s, RUDY VALLÉE enjoyed a successful career on radio, 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. A comedy writer for such radio and television personalities as Milton Berle, Tallulah Bankhead, Sid Caesar and Groucho Marx, SELMA DIAMOND starred in the television sitcom Night Court as feisty, whiskey-voiced Bailiff Selma Hacker from 1984 until her death in 1985. This check was most probably for writing for Vallée's Drene Show on radio since Diamond did not act until the early 1970s. Bank cancellation holes and stamps, not at signatures. Fine condition.
