(1899 - 1991) American actress and author. The daughter of author Richard Le Gallienne, she is probably best remembered for her notorious love affairs with Alla Nazimova and Basil Rathbone. A group of six items signed by Le Gallienne: the first, an I.S.P. 8" x 10" sepia showing the star in her later years. Boldly inscribed to Laura and signed, adding date "24-xi-76"; a signed copy of the magazine The Theatre with an article by her within, dated "12-i-77"; two individual commemorative programs for The Royal Family, performed in 1978, both signed by Le Gallienne, and one by other stars of the production, including SAM LEVENE, CAROLE SHELLEY, LEONARD FREY, LAURA STUART, ELLEN FISKE and others; signed copy of her volume, With a Quiet Heart: An Autobiography by Eva Le Gallienne (New York: The Viking Press, 1953), and a signed copy of her volume The Mystic in the Theatre: Eleanora Duse, first printing, (New York: Farrar, Strauss & Giroux, 1966). Finally, an unsigned printed program for a celebration of her birthday in 1977. Together seven items, very good.
