    Description

    Mabel Normand Signed Letter. This typed letter on Mabel's letterhead is dated May 19, 1925, a time when the star was desperately fighting for a comeback. Apparently concerned about finances, Mabel asks her ex-secretary for "the address of the firm where you purchased the last fan pictures that were cheaper than Kopec...". Albert J. Kopec was a masterful Hollywood photographer (and some of his portraits of Mabel are included in this archive). Mabel also asks where to buy folders, cardboard and more letterhead paper. She signs the letter "Mabel N." and adds a warm handwritten note inviting Betty to visit her. It appears Mabel was at a loss, personally and professionally, without her trusted secretary. In Excellent condition.
