1949. Diamond Lil originated in 1928 and was revived 3 times in 1949-1951. This lot is likely from the 1949 touring show. It consists of a 6X9" handbill from Ford's Theatre in Baltimore MD and 12X9" souvenir program. Condition of the handbill is Good, with two folds, smoothed-out wrinkles and very slight chipping, some separation at spine (see photos), condition of the souvenir program is Very Good with one bent corner, a ding to the other corner and very slight soiling. Schellhase's Restaurant in Baltimore MD, owned by C H Otto Schellhase and Frieda Schellhase, operated from 1924 to 1980 and is "remembered for its heavy draperies and even heavier food." H.L. Mencken made it famous as the meeting place for his Saturday Night club. Mencken's influence led many in the world of the arts to gather there. Henry Fonda and Margaret Sullivan were married in Baltimore in 1931 and had their reception at Schellhase's. Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne ate there every night while touring in "The Taming of the Shrew." The walls of Schellhase's gave testimony to its popularity with theatre types, being covered in signed photos of the many Broadway and Hollywood performers who stopped there in the 1930s, '40s, '50s and into the 1960s. -Shelved in Netdesk office, above Ephemera section, in clear vinyl sleeve [Schellhase consignment].
