Ed Sullivan, on Louise Brooks

An East Coast collector recently sent me a scan of this note which he wanted me to share with the Louise Brooks fans which read this blog.I think it pretty much speaks for itself.
According to Wikipedia, "Ed Sullivan (1901 – 1974) was an American entertainment writer and television host, best known as the presenter of a TV variety show called The Ed Sullivan Show that was broadcast from 1948 until 1971. Its 23-year run made it one of the longest-running variety shows in U.S. broadcast history." Before he got on TV, Sullivan had worked as columnist for the New York Daily News. I have run across a few of his syndicated columns from 1938 and 1939 which mentioned Louise Brooks.

    I wish all collectors were so generous with the LBS...
