Description

    Vincent Price Fan Correspondence From the 1930s A set of two telegrams and four typed and four handwritten letters, dated June 18, 1935, to March 25th, 1939, from friends, colleagues, and admirers congratulating him on his performance in the play Victoria Regina. Price appeared as Prince Albert in the play, and most of the letters are addressed to him as either "Price" or "Albert." The play opened on the 26th December 1935 and ran for three years -- and a telegram from that opening is among those included. After Victoria Regina wrapped up in London, Price was asked to reprise his role in stateside performances in New York. After the play's success on Broadway, Price was offered a Hollywood contract, which he turned down in order to gain more acting experience. He continued to do theatre work before finally kicking off his film career in 1938 with the comedy Service de Luxe. Wonderful mementoes from the early days of a budding actor, these letters are in overall Very Fine condition with very minor wear, light tanning, and some fold creases. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
