85021: James Cagney/J. Edgar Hoover Autographed Letter
James Cagney/J. Edgar Hoover Autographed Letter (Circa, 1936). Framed (25" X 15").
When James Cagney took the Role of Federal Agent Brick Davis in the 1935 smash film, G-Men, he had some tutoring in the role from the FBI. It seems from the this amazing and authentic letter dated May, 12 1936, that he visited the Bureau after its release as well. This letter on FBI letterhead and signed by its chief, J. Edgar Hoover, acknowledges the Bureau's receipt of Cagney's fingerprints when he visited and thanks him for coming to the Bureau. This great letter is accompanied by a signed photo of Cagney as well as a color glossy photo of Hoover, all framed in a an attractive display. Very Fine.

Important notice: Heritage usually auctions material at the rate of 100-110 lots per hour. On some occasions the Live Auctioneer bid software or the Internet may not be able to keep up with the pace of the auction. We recommend placing a realistic absentee bid now as insurance to avoid disappointment. Occasionally the auctioneer may eliminate or reject a Live Auctioneer Live bid, and the auctioneer may also reopen a lot after the close of the Live Auctioneers live bidding (usually because we missed an audience bid), and may reject your bid even if it shows you as the winning bidder. By bidding via Live Auctioneers, you agree that Heritage may award the lot to another bidder at its sole discretion under the circumstances described above or any other reasonable circumstances. Since Live Auctioneer bids are not shown to us until we open the lot on the floor, we treat those bids just like floor bids. In most cases the floor responds before the Live Auctioneer bid is presented to us, due to Internet lag time, so for consistency we have made it a policy that floor bids are always considered first over tie Live Auctioneer bids. Also please note that all Heritage lots purchased through Live Auctioneers carry a 19.50% Buyer's Premium with a $14 minimum Buyer's Premium. Please make sure you read the Terms and Conditions before you bid. This lot is being auctioned in conjunction with a live floor auction by Heritage Auctions. All final auction and invoice information will be supplied by Heritage Auctions, and all other information should be considered preliminary.
