THEATER and MOVIE ACTRESS PHOTO ALBUM and SCRAPBOOK 1930s-1940s

Item #1136

.

10” x 13” photo album with 24 leaves/48 pages containing about 150 photos, an envelope with negatives and various newspaper clippings, all having to do with theater and movie actors in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The album belonged to Dorothy Lovell of New Haven, Connecticut, whose name is written on the inside cover. According to Allmovies.com, she is credited with roles in two movies from 1940, “Remedy for Riches,” and “The Courageous Dr. Christian.” She seems to have been a part of the “Post Road Players,” a theater group in Connecticut. Many of the photos show actors on set both outdoors and on stage. Several of the photos are annotated with both first and last names and also the show names, which include “Spring Dance,” “Horse Tale,” “Reflected Glory,” and “Excursion,”

Actors shown or mentioned in the album include Brace Conning, Fay Bainter, Ruth Weston, Frank Harvey, Edgar Barrier, etc. She appears to have had a thing for the actor Reed Herring, whose photo appears several times, along with newspaper clippings.

Photos are various sizes including a few 8” x 10” photos with one signed portrait by Paul Haakon, a Danish ballet and Broadway dancer.

The pages of the album have brittle edges and about a handful of photos are loose or missing, as well as some detached newspaper clippings.

A nice collection of theater items featuring many bit players from the era.

Price: $500.00
