The Threatened Kidnapping of Maria Dietrich - Photographic Archive

A small archive from the collection of the family of Marlene Dietrich of items used by Beverly Hills Police Department in 1932 during the investigation into the threatened kidnapping of Marlene Dietrich's daughter Maria.

The striking letters are put together as collages of words clipped out of newspapers and bear menacing, if sometimes confusing, messages such as "Mad hopes to take Maria away from home. We will quickly find her. Ha ha ha. L B meaning what?" The original envelope used to store the letters is included, with an autograph note presumably in Dietrich's hand reading "Kidnapper Briefe" ("kidnapper letters"). Complete contents listed below.  Photographs stamped May 16, 1932. Sized 3 x 2 to 7 x 8 inches; some with mirroring in dark areas, few with staples at edges. Overall in very good condition.

Collection of six original linoleum cut prints of early-twentieth-century theatrical personalities by the American artist and caricaturist Alfred Frueh.

Cohan, Marie Dressler (shown as a gorilla-like figure), Raymond Hitchcock (black and yellow print), and George Arliss. Most of the prints appear to be as published in Frueh's 1922 folio Stage Folk. Printed on thin paper, attached to same-sized mounts, with overall toning and some light edge wear but otherwise in fine condition. Sized 6.5 x 10 inches (Barrymore), 8.25 x 12 inches (Adams, Cohan), 10.5 x 14.5 inches (Dressler), and 9.5 x 15 inches (Hitchcock, Arliss.) Read More...
