DescriptionA Funny Telegram Related to Mae West and "Gone With The Wind," 1939. Sent to Herald Express celebrity journalist, Jimmy Starr, in Los Angeles, stamp dated "1939 Mar 10," reading in part "...May [sic] West already signed Belle Watling role with Selznick," telegram goes on about actors "Holly" [sic] Chester [Hally Chester, later credited as Hal E. Chester] and Mickey Rooney at Sardi's "giving diners a treat as to how young Hollywood punks act when not at home," from a "Mish" who evidently got early yet wrong information about the casting of the film -- though West as the madame might not have been a bad choice!
