BANKHEAD, TALLULAH
TALLULAH BANKHEAD A very early autograph letter signed Tallulah, on Hotel Dupont, Wilmington, Delaware stationery, dated Wednesday and, in an unknown hand, March 6, 1918. The 16 year old! daughter of W. B. Bankhead, Alabaman politician and future Speaker of the House writes a lengthy, chaotic account of her first impressions of the theatre world to "My Precious Daddy," "I was so very glad to hear from you. We arrived here Tuesday and are leaving to-morrow for Atlantic City. I am going to try and answer all the questions but first a thank you a million times for the money and I will be very careful and not waste it….I have very little to do in the play but Mr. Schubert and Mr. Rinhart said to try it and get the experience…he [said] I am going to advance in each part. Now I am only an extra girl in the studio…the rest of the girls have had some years of experience…they all tell me I am very lucky to get with a Schubert production…" "I love the stage to death and I am so happy that I am on it. They are paying me thirty dollars a week but I think I will get a better part and of course they will pay me more…" "The very first night I was very nervous before I went on but after I got out there I was not." Tallulah assures her father she is behaving herself and not partying, a lie many girls have told many fathers. Bankhead comments on Alla Nazimova, the Russian actress, appearing in The Wild Duck. As unpredictable as the actress, the letter is 8 pages long: 4 pages 8vo horizontally and two pages 4to written across the length of two pages of hotel stationery. The play she was appearing in The Squab was a flop and ran only 45 performances. An amazing item. [ref:6184]
