About This Item

Good +. A small grouping of items relating to the life of Philip Loeb, an actor best known for his radio work on the hit program "The Goldbergs." The collection likely comes from another actor named John Most, as his name appears on several of these documents. Loeb was accused of being a communist in 1950 and was subsequently blacklisted. Loeb steadfastly denied communist sympathies, but the blow to his professional life was too much to bear, and Loeb commited suicide in a hotel room in New York in 1955. Included are two postcard-sized photographic prints of Loeb watching a rehearsal of a play he was directing on Broadway, "The Three Sisters," by Chekhov; an 8" x 15" program for that same play; an an 8" x 10" portrait of Loeb, inscribed by him to Johnny Most; a program for a play produced by Loeb entitled "Common to the Trade" (about 7.5" x 11"); some news clippings of Loeb's untimely death; and, perhaps most interestingly, a small postcard depicting First National Studios in Hollywood, with a small note from Loeb on the back, adressed to Most: "the colored ones are those I have organized. Love, Phil." Loeb had a long career as an officer in the Actor's Equity Association, now over a century old, and one of the most consistently radical unions in the entertinment world, having stood for integration in the 1940s, and steadfastly against McCarthyism in the 1950s (while the Screen Actor's Guild has a much more checkered history). Condition varies from good to very good, with general age-toning to some documents, some old tape or glue residue on the reverse of some pieces, but the collection is generally presentable.

About Cleveland Book Company

As a small, independent bookseller in Cleveland, Ohio, I deal in general used, rare, and antiquarian books, autographs, manuscripts, pamphlets, and personal and family papers in all subjects. My family has been in the antiquarian book business since 1971. Are you moving, downsizing, or doing some spring cleaning? Did you inherit or otherwise come into some old books? Or, maybe you've collected modern novels from the last thirty or fifty years. No matter what kinds of books you have, we'd love to take a look at them! We travel throughout Ohio, western Pennsylvania and New York, southern Michigan, and eastern Indiana, and will travel farther in some cases to look at whole libraries or even just a few particularly interesting books. Give us a call at (216) 352-3940 and we can talk more about the kinds of books you have.
