Above: The front and back of the note card sent to Clifford T. Bell by infamous film
maker and showman impresario Carl Denham while both were making passage from
Europe to New York in 1930. From Denham's reference to Clifford's reputation it
would seem that Clifford had achieved a certain notoriety as the result of his
adventures in North Africa. Nowhere in Clifford's surviving writings are there any hints
that he confided with Denham in regards to the Purple Fez.
