APH1034) Australia 1928 Interesting postal history item for Australian and US postage due collectors and for movie star mail buffs. Australia KGV I I/2d red, looks like SG 87, sent from Albury, New South Wales, on Feb. 24 1928. Addressed to USA, so it was underpaid by 1 I/2d. A New South Wales "T" marking was added on the front, and a large boxed notice was added on the reverse by the Australia Postal Department, telling the recipient to return the envelope to the sender and advise them of the proper postage rate to "your country." Upon arrival in US a 5c precanceled postage due was added, probably Scott #J64. The cover was sent to Miss Dolores Costello. Miss Costello at that time was a well-known silent movie star. She first appeared in a movie with her then well-known father, Maurice Costello, in 1911 at age 7. While in New York, she met Lou Cristillo, who, after meeting her, took her last name for his stage name and later became well known as part of the Abbott and Costello team. In 1924,after appearing in the New York Production of "George White Scandals," she signed with Warner Brothers Studio in California. This cover must have been sent to her shortly after she signed with that studio. In 1928 she married John Barrymore. They later divorced, after having 2 children, DeDe and Johng Drew. Her last movie was "This is the Army" in 1943. She died in 1979. Great little cover for whoever grabs it. Price $79
