Description

    Darryl Zanuck's Telegrams from Bella Darvi. The tempestuous love affair of producer Darryl F. Zanuck and starlet Bella Darvi finally ended with her September 11, 1971 suicide. These six telegrams are from Bella's glory days, when Zanuck was preparing her advent as a major new star in such films as The Egyptian (1954) and before Mrs. Zanuck learned of the affair and exiled Bella back to Europe. The telegrams are effusive ("I adore you" professes Bella in one of them), are all wired from Paris to Los Angeles and have survived the decades in a studio envelope addressed to "Mr. Darryl F. Zanuck Personal & Confidential." Sad mementoes from one of the most garish mogul-and-starlet debacles in Hollywood history. All are in Very Fine to Excellent condition.
