RUDY VALLÉE
Vallée signed this letter to the American Federation of Radio Artists in 1951 to notify them that he'd signed a new agency contract with MCA Artists, Ltd. and to cancel his previous contract with them.
Typed letter signed "Rudy Vallée" in blue ink. 1 page, 8¼x10¾. June 13, 1951, dated partially in blue ink in unknown hand. Addressed to American Federation of Radio Artists, New York City. Vallée wrote this to the American Federation of Radio Artists that he had entered into a standard AFRA three-year agency contract with MCA Artists, Ltd. and to "request that you grant whatever waiver are necessary in order for said AFRA contract to become effective in accordance with its terms, cancelling and superseding my prior AFRA contract with MCA Artists, Ltd." From the mid-1920s to the mid-1950s, Vallée (1901-1986, born Hubert Prior Vallée in Island Pond, Vermont) enjoyed a successful career on radio, in movies, in Broadway musicals and with a solo nightclub act. His films include The Palm Beach Story (1942), I Remember Mama (1948), The Helen Morgan Story (1957), The Night They Raided Minsky's (1968), Won Ton Ton, the Dog Who Saved Hollywood (1976) and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (1967), in which he reprised his role from the successful 1961 Broadway musical. The first singer to be called a "crooner", Vallée was known for carrying a small megaphone and for his catch phrase "Heigh-Ho, Everyone", which he first used when appearing at New York's Heigh-Ho Club. Lightly toned and creased. Two binder holes near top edge. Staple holed and paper clip impression near upper left corner. Light dents in top edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
