Out of stock
Here offered is a Mary Miles Minter Signed Handwritten Thank You Poem
Mary Miles Minter appeared in 54 silent era motion pictures from 1912 to 1923. In 1922, Minter was involved in scandal surrounding the murder of director William Desmond Taylor, for whom she professed her love. Although gossip implicated her mother, former actress Charlotte Shelby, as the murderer, Minter’s reputation was tarnished, and she gave up her movie career in 1923.
The signature is in blue steel-tip fountain pen and grades a 9. The thank you poem reads-
” To Roy, in gratitude. Roses, did Roy bring to me, Tiny ones formed perfectly. Ruby red, king’s gold, soft pink…. No Sweeter buds e’er bloomed, I think. But mor be speak they of the man who honors age from his youth’s span; Whose tenderness toward serenity two could teach young love anything or two. Mary Miles Minter (birthday, 1st April, 1974)”.
This item comes with a JSA Full Letter for top notch authenticity.
This item originates from the Roy Moseley collection. Moseley was one of the leaders in show business journalism in England. He wrote many books that appeared on the New York Time’s Best Seller List. Being an author in high regard had its perks, as he was closely connected to royalty and celebrities. Hence his notable work, “My Stars and Other Friends” provides a glimpse into the lifestyle us everyday people dream about. During his career, Moseley brilliantly gathered in person some of the finest autographs in the world. Some were personalized to him as a testament to their respect and kinship. Every celebrity has a story as well as every autograph Moseley obtained. Here now is one of those legacy pieces for your collection.
