KATHARINE CORNELL SIGNED AND INSCRIBED SOUVENIR BOOK GALLERY OF STAGE PORTRAITS

KATHARINE CORNELL SIGNED AND INSCRIBED SOUVENIR BOOK GALLERY OF STAGE PORTRAITS

Inscribed to Mrs "Schelhasse" and signed by Katherine Cornell on the cover, and signed again on the inside (3rd signature is a facsimile, see photo for details) This 12X9" souvenir book contains 15 photos of Cornell, 13 of them in character, made from about 1931-1942. Some of these roles were in shows that never played on Broadway. The overall condition of the book is Very Good, with a couple of light scuffs and some foxing to the front cover. All of the writing on the book is Miss Cornell's. Schellhase's Restaurant in Baltimore MD, owned by C H Otto Schellhase and Minna 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 Sullavan 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. See our catalog for more items from the Schellhase collection.
