Autograph letter signed: "Ruth Roland", in purple ink, 5½x3½. 1934. Los Angeles, California. 1¢ U.S. stamp In full: "So happy you are better and heard you had such a lovely xmas - I did too- all good thots. Fondly". Ruth Roland (1892-1932, born in San Francisco, California) was an American actress with over 210 movie credits and who, at her height, rivaled Pearl White as queen of the movie serials. She started acting at three and had her own vaudeville act by her teens. She got her start in film in 1908 after being spotted by a Kalem Company director. Her big break came with The Red Circle (1915), the first of her 11 serials. Roland reportedly made more money on real estate than acting in serials; this, plus her increasingly imperious set presence, probably caused her to leave films in favor of vaudeville. Roland made several comeback attempts - including the talkie Reno (1930) - but these were unsuccessful. She was mostly forgotten, but also independently wealthy, by her last film, From Nine to Five, in 1935. Adhesive residue on top margin. Corners worn and creased. Notch on top left corner and center edge missing. Small nick on left edge. Lightly toned. Surface creases.
