    Natacha Rambova Keepsakes: Six of her Play Programs, Plus Theodore Kosloff Signed Note and Items. Natacha Rambova was an ardent theater-goer. She saved these programs from the 1920 and 1930s that have now survived her by over 50 years: souvenir program for legendary dancer Pavlowa, circa 1920, embossed cover, striking black and white photos and sketches; a 1922 Los Angeles Philharmonic Auditorium program for Pavlowa, 42 pages, with great vintage ads; A Musical Galaxy program, 1927, foreword by Leopold Stokowski, striking color sketches, 28 pages, includes "How the New Victor Records Are Made"; 1922 program for the "Orpheus Club" at the L.A. Philharmonic Auditorium; 1927 Los Angeles Grand Opera Association program, Shrine Auditorium, eight pages, dramatic photos; and The Playgoer program for a 1932 production of Lysistrata, staged at L.A.'s famous Carthay Fox Circle Theatre, the site of many gala Hollywood premieres (including Gone With the Wind). The Playgoer program has 23 pages and many great ads, including ones for the stage version of Grand Hotel then playing in L.A., and four full-page ads for Forest Lawn! Also included are several items related to Theodore Kosloff, Rambova's Svengali-like discoverer, who had shot her in the leg when she left him. These include a full Kosloff signature in pencil, as well as newspaper clippings and a concert program from the Al Malaikah Temple. This is a fascinating assortment of items, all in Very Fine condition.
