Description

    Rudy Vallee Archive. One of the most popular entertainers of the 1930s, singer-saxophonist Rudy Vallée had a career that spanned decades. Featured are a car plate and door plate inscribed with Rudy's name; a program for a 1941 charity tennis event in which Vallee and actor-strongman Nat Pendleton squared off against actor Gilbert Roland and vocalist George Murphy; and two songbooks that belonged to him, "Rudy Vallee's Collection of World Famous Love Songs" and "Rudy Wiedoeft's Complete Modern Method for the Saxophone." Wiedoeft was a huge influence on Vallee, and his death by cirrhosis of the liver in 1940 was sudden and tragic, a fact mentioned in the March 26, 1940 letter to Vallee from music publisher J.J. Robbins, also included in this lot. All items are in superb condition, with only a modest amount of wear and tear due to age.
