Eddie Cantor, Comedian, Dancer, Singer, Actor. Two Signed 1939 Letters For Sale
What I have are two typewritten letters both on Eddie Cantor's personal stationary and both sent to the same person.
The first is dated July 21, 1939, and is addressed to Mr. A.M Hauser of the Bronx, NY York. It states: Thanks for the song you composed in my honor. It was most thoughtful of you. All good wishes, Sincerely Eddie Cantor
The second is dated November 22, 1939. It states: Dear Mr. Hauser: Thanks for your letter containing the poem. It was most thoughtful of you. All good wishes, Sincerely Eddie Cantor
Mr Hauser (the poet) was my grandfather and both of these letters have been in my families possession since their receipt in 1939. They have been stored away for many years and as you can see in the photos, they show some wear, fold lines and such. The paper (I don't know if it was once bright white) is an off white. The type as well as the signatures are crisp and clear.
Please check my response.... Honest seller, great reputation and a quick shipper. A few years ago an autograph house offered to buy these two and although I declined the time is now right for a collector who would appreciate them to have the pair.
Any questions....Please just ask.
Eddie Cantor (1892-1964) was an American "Illustrated song" performer, comedian, dancer, singer, actor and composer. His career encompassed Broadway, radio, movies and the early days of television. His nickname was "Banjo Eyes" for the eye rolling he did during his song and dance routines. His eyes became his trademark and in 1941he starred on Broadway in the musical, Banjo Eyes. As a singer, Cantor's hits include "Makin' Whoopee," "If You Knew Susie" and"Margie." Among the songs he wrote are "Merrily We Roll Along" and the Merrie Melodies theme song heard at the beginning and end of many of the Warner Bros. cartoons of the 1930s.
