COCTEAU Jean (1889-1963)
Signed autograph letter addressed to Jean Marais.
S.l.n.d. circa 1940], 1 page in-4 in ink on paper.
Love letter from Jean Cocteau to Jean Marais signed with a star and relating in part to Jean Cocteau's play Le Bel indifférent played by Edith Piaf and Paul Meurisse. "[...] It is only from you, only from your letters, my beautiful angel, that I receive calm and strength. Tonight we got Paul Meurisse's reprieve. Piaf was overjoyed and I understood her. So he'll be able to create the role. My beloved angel. I'm writing you badly because I'm... very nervous because of Bébé's stupid attitude (Christian Bérard). [...] But if you arrive then everything will be superb [...]".
