Typed letter signed to Roy Edwards, dated April 28, 1956, along with an inscribed calling card from 1963

N.p. N.p. 1956, 1963. Small archive consisting of two notes from film director and author Kenneth Anger to his friend, British film critic Roy Edwards. Two items are dated 1956 and 1963, pretty much the epicenter of Anger's coming into prominence as a film director of importance, with the releases of "Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome" (1953) and "Scorpio Rising," (1964).

Included are:

Typed letter signed from Anger to Edwards, dated April 28, 1956 and with Anger's address in Paris, regarding a New York showing of his films. Anger mentions an enclosed program (not present here) that featured comments by Edwards. Anger notes that he very much liked the comments in the program, and hopes to have them published in their entirety one day. He ends by saying he is eager to receive his copy of "House of Souls" (presumably the 1906 book by Arthur Machen) from Edwards. Included is the original airmail mailing envelope. 8 x 5 inches, rough edged paper stock, with one vertical fold for mailing.

Anger's engraved calling card, with a brief note in green holograph ink, dated February 9, 1963 in New York City, stating simply "Thot [sic] you'd enjoy having these / Drop me a line 'what's up,' followed by Anger's American Express pickup office address.

Both items Very Good to Near Fine, the calling card with a small stain to note.
