4to, 4 pp. 43 typed lines, and two-line manuscript postscript. Signed in pencil 'Sincerely | Dollie & Troy.', with the name of the troupe typed over this. Text clear and complete on discoloured and creased paper. Chatty and humorous letter. 'By the time you read this letter we will have either left a terrible stench in the Theatre or else the Manager will be satisfied. [.] JANUARY 11, FLASH!!!! The well known German movie star and Humorist, Willy Reichert, has refused permission to the Four Comets, American Roller Skaters enjoying too much success already, the favour of breaking in a new number. It is rumored back-stage that the "STAR" has heard too many laughs abou the new ACT of the Four Comets . . . . . . . . X "SCOOP" Hoskins'. Postscript reads 'Hello Maurice [Colleano] - Your blue-eyed girl really misses you.' The Four Comets have been described as 'Acrobatic roller-skating stunt quartet. The two men wear tailcoats, the women diaphanous dresses. They perform on a small circular mat. Various shots of different combinations of the quartet performing amazing, gravity defying tricks. The tricks involve them spinning around the small mat and lifting each other into the air.' From the Colleano Family archive. N° de ref. de la librería 9545
