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 an 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, and details specific moves between the two men. Postcard is signed in blue fountain-pen, “H Bogart”. Signature is neat and bold. Includes an 8 in. x 10 in. production photo of Bogart and Peter Lorre sitting on-set in front of the chessboard.
