Los Angeles: 1 page, quarto, (1926). Written on Colleen Moore’s printed personal stationery to Alfred E. Green, the director of her film Ella Cinders. Moore humorously writes a fan letter to Green who, in their film, a tale of Hollywood, appeared in the film as naturally a film director. “...I just saw you in the movie called Ella Cinders and thought you were wonderful so handsome and cute, especially that little mustache. I loved the part where you were so kind to poor little Ella [Colleen Moore]. I hope you act in lots more moves, as you are my favorite. Please give an autographed photo. Enclosed is 25 cents.” With some very minor handling, else fine. Alfred E. Green (1889 - 1960) directed some of the brightest stars of his time, including Mary Pickford, Wallace Reid, and Bette Davis who won a Best Actress Oscar for her role in his 1935 film Dangerous. He is otherwise best known for his films Baby Face (1933) with Barbara Stanwyk and George Brent, The Jolson Story (1946) with Larry Parks, Evelyn Keyes, and William Demarest, and The Jackie Robinson Story (1950) with Jackie Robinson, Ruby Dee, and Minor Robinson. He made his last feature, Top Banana, with Phil Silvers in 1954 and spent the remainder of his career directing episodic TV series. (Inventory #: 15420J)
