NOËL COWARD He sends a typed letter to actress Grace George apologizing for the misunderstanding Typed Letter signed: "Noël Coward" in black ink, 1p, 5¾x8¾. No place, 1937 February 1. To actress Grace George, New York. In full: "I am sorry not to have answered your letter before. The whole thing is a complete misunderstanding. I have not seen 'Matrimony, Pfd.' at all and I never remember having said 'Bloody, simply bloody' to Mattie about any play, except my own 'This Was A Man', which flopped gloriously years ago. In any case, I should never dream of going to a play in which you were appearing without coming around and paying my respects. With all my very best wishes to you - Sincerely," This Was A Man, written by Coward and starring Nigel Bruce, opened at the Klaw Theatre (251 W. 45, demolished 1954) on November 23, 1926 and closed after 31 performances. The comedy Matrimony, Pfd. opened at the Playhouse Theatre (137 W. 48, demolished 1969) on November 12, 1936 and closed after 61 performances. Grace George starred and co-wrote the book adapted from the story by Louis Verneuil. The brilliant plays of British playwright, actor, producer, and composer Noël Coward (1899-1973) include Private Lives (1930) and Blithe Spirit (1941). Coward also wrote book musicals, revues, short stories, and a novel. The third (unfinished) volume of his autobiography, Past Conditional, was published posthumously in 1986. In 1943, Coward won a Special Academy Award for In Which We Serve, a WWII movie in which he starred, wrote the script, produced, directed, and composed the musical score. Fold creases through bottom of signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
