This singer and actor of films, opera, radio and television is best remembered for his film partnership with Jeanette MacDonald in eight films, starting with "Naughty Marietta" in 1935 and finishing with "I Married an Angel" in 1942. TLS, 1p, 7¼" X 10½", n.p., 1939 June 19. Addressed to Barbara Kemp. Very good. Strong original folds; minor mounting traces on verso. Wonderfully cordial and personal early letter to an admirer, reading in part: "Yes, I visited Des Moines on my concert tour this spring -- and next season will be back in the Pacific Northwest, at Portland on February 17th. I do not have the local details, time, place, tickets, and so forth. I shall be back on the Chase and Sanborn radio program for the fall season beginning August 13th -- and your song request will not be overlooked. It is a favorite of mine too." Large, bold full signature in blue fountain pen. Recipient Kemp's return address shows Astoria, Oregon, hence the mention of Pacific Northwest. Her letter to him must have been exceptionally compelling to prompt such a detailed reply!. Bookseller Inventory # 40814
