The actress signs a letter to her friend, lamenting her stay in New York due to being homesick
Autograph letter signed: "Ruth Roland", in purple ink, 5½x3½. 1936. New York City, New York. In full: "I'm still here in N.Y. Worse luck as I'm very homesick. So glad you and you mother are well and congratulations was late to little Ruth. Best of thots". 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. Large 1 inch section cut from top right corner. Adhesive residue on top margin. Small nicks on top edge. Soiled. Ink stamps. Corners lightly worn. Lightly toned.
