LEW FIELDS (of WEBER & FIELDS)
Typed letter signed on stationery of his theater management company, the year the comedy team broke up. Here he declines to review some burlesque scripts.
Typed Letter signed: "Lew M. Fields", 1 page, 8x6. New York, N. Y. 1904 August 8. On letterhead of the Hamlin, Mitchell and Fields theater management company to "My dear Madame". In full: "Owing to the fact that we have a contract with Mr. Glen Mac Donough, whereby he is to write all the burlesque for the Lew Fields Theatre, we find it impossible to avail ourselves of your kind offer to submit your manuscripts to us. Perhaps, at some future time, we may be able to consider your work. Very truly yours". Lew Fields (1866-1941), born Moses Schoenfeld, formed the vaudeville comedy team of Weber and Fields (with Joe Weber). They also had some success on film. Their routines included a "Dutch act" in which they portrayed German immigrants. In 1896, they opened the Weber and Fields Music Hall in New York City, subsequently a venue for many stars of the era including Lillian Russell and DeWolf Hopper. Although they stopped working together regular in 1904, they made several later films together, most of them silents, including Friendly Enemies (1923). They made their last appearance as a comedy team in the first show at Radio City Music Hall (December 27, 1932). Multiple folds and creases. Soiled and worn. Paper residue (previous mounting) on verso (no show-through).
