HUMPHREY BOGART HANDWRITTEN POSTCARD WITH CHESS MOVES AND SIGNATURES FROM CASABLANCA SET - Fascinating slice of personal history from Bogart’s very busy career, an ongoing move-by-mail chess game between Irving Kovner of Brooklyn and Bogart during the filming of Casablanca (personal even to the degree that Bogart asks Kovner to use Bogart’s home address). Includes two Xerox copies of typed letters, one signed by Bogart, the other by his secretary, describing his avid interest in pursuing this “move-by-mail” chess game, in spite of long work hours filming. The postcard is written entirely in Bogart’s hand, (including Kovner’s address on verso) and details specific moves between the two men. Signed in blue fountain pen, “H Bogart”. Includes an 8 in. x 10 in. production photo of Bogart and Peter Lorre sitting on-set in front of a chessboard. Card exhibits toning on edges which touches “rt” in “Bogart”, otherwise; Very Good.
