GRETA GARBO CORRESPONDENCE REGARDING

Lot 352: GRETA GARBO CORRESPONDENCE REGARDING "LOST" CHECK

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: A set of correspondence regarding a "lost" California state refund check from 1946 that begins in 1964 and ends with the deposit of the refund in 1964. Interesting points within the correspondence: Greta Garbo had a tenacity to follow an issue through to the end and felt the right thing should be done. She would not passively be taken advantage of. Also interesting is that much of the correspondence is between George Schlee's secretary and Garbo's accountant, W.J. Plischke. In the course of the correspondence, Schlee passed away. At issue with the check was that it was found in storage and never cashed. The check was a refund in the amount of $164.87 from Garbo's 1944 taxes and issued in 1946. Included are letters, copies of letters, documents, and copies of documents surrounding this issue, including the final receipt for the deposit of the check on October 26, 1965.Largest, 11 by 8 1/2 inches

GRETA GARBO JOHN F. KENNEDY HALF DOLLARS

Greta Garbo was invited to visit the Kennedy White House in 1963, just a few days before President Kennedy's assassination. While visiting, Garbo was given a gift by the president that became a mystery after the president's death. Kennedy had a scrimshaw collection that was fully inventoried during his time in the White House. After his death, a whale's tooth was found to be missing. For many years it was unknown where the whale tooth had gone until a John F. Kennedy Library and Museum librarian found a thank-you letter from Garbo to Jackie Kennedy. In part, "It was a most unusual evening for me that I spent with you in the White House," Garbo wrote to Jacqueline Kennedy. "It was really fascinating and enchanting. I might believe it was a dream if I did not have in my possession the President's 'tooth' facing me." The gift was a spontaneous gesture on the part of the president and never recorded. Garbo was enamored of the president and deeply saddened by his death. She kept these coins in his honor.
