164 Clarke, Donald Henderson. (1887-1958). American author and journalist known for his screenplays, romantic novels and mysteries. ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY AMERICAN SCREENWRITER AND NOVELIST DONALD HENDERSON CLARKE.
Circa [1930]. [1930]. Good Signed
Circa [1930].. [1930].. Good. - A black-and-white 10 inch high by 8 inch wide portrait is inscribed and signed in black ink, across the portrait at bottom right: "To Seymour Halpern / Good luck to you / Donald Henderson Clarke". There is a piece out of the bottom right corner & 2 pieces out of the bottom edge. On the verso is an unfinished pencil drawing in an unknown hand of a woman with her back turned to the viewer. Good.

This head-and shoulders portrait of the bespectacled Donald Henderson Clarke was taken by the New York City studio Apeda. It is inscribed to future Congressman Seymour Halpern, then a young autograph collector.

Donald Henderson Clarke was an American author and journalist known for his screenplays, romantic novels and mysteries. Among his screenplays, many of which were filmed by John Ford, were "Born Reckless", adapted from his novel [1930], "The Women Men Marry" [1937] and "The Ghost Ship" [1943]. When his novel "Female", the basis for the film of the same name, was published in 1933, it was declared obscene by the Supreme Court of the State of New York. The decision was upheld on appeal.

The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co- sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation.

171 Corbaley, Kate DIRECT DETAILED SYNOPSIS OF GATES OF BRASS. Frank Keenan Productions. Issued exclusively to Palmer Plan Members, Palmer Photoplay Corporation, by Special Permission of the Author
Palmer Photoplay Corporation, [1919]. [1919]. Good 
Palmer Photoplay Corporation, [1919].. [1919].. Good. - Small folio [14 inches high by 8-1/4 inches wide]. 16 mechanically reproduced typed pages, printed on one side only, plus a gray paper backing sheet bound with 2 staples along the top edge. The script is bowed from having been rolled up. The title page is soiled & somewhat darkened with its bottom edge chipped. the backing sheet is chipped with a stain & with a long tear to its bottom edge. Good.

The story of Jim Blake, an "unscruplous promoter", played by Frank Keenan. The opening paragraph of the synopsis reads: "The fast vanishing class of man called the promoter is the gilded gingerbread of American business life. It is a class whose glittering pretensions cannot make it the cake of capital although its cheap gilt denies its relation to the plain bread of honest labor." Blake's financial manipulations ruin the father of his beloved daughter's fiance. When she reluctantly accepts her father's guilt, they become estranged. A heartbroken Blake spends his first Christmas alone partying with his friends, and when his daughter and her husband arrive on a surprise visit, they find he has died from his excesses.

Kate Corbaley [1878-1938] became a screenwriter to support herself after her husband left her and moved to China. She wrote around twenty silent films between 1916 and 1926. In 1917 her screenplay "Real Folks" won a Photoplay Magazine contest and was produced by Triangle Films. She became the "principal" of the Palmer Photoplay Corporation, an agency which also ran a correspondence school for aspiring screenwriters. In 1927, she joined the script department of MGM, tasked with choosing potential film projects. Studio head Louis B. Mayer trusted her judgment and refused to have plot summaries read to him by anyone else.

Henrietta Crosman [1861-1944] was an acclaimed American stage actor. In 1914 she contracted to appear in a silent film for Adolph Zukor's Famous Players and went on to appear in several silent films. When the talkies arrived in the 1930s, the movie business started seeking out stage-trained actors. Campbell, by then nearly seventy, experienced a revival of her career, becoming a much-loved veteran movie star in such films as "Pilgrimage" [1933] and "The Royal Family of Broadway [1930]. Crosman's second husband was Broadway stage director and producer Martin Campbell. With Crosman, he joined the nascent silent film industry and by the 1920s he was a noted film director.
