Busy summer for Los Angeles collector (and police commission president) Steve Soboroff. Over the weekend he closed on the Underwood Standard Typewriter that Marlene Dietrich had in her New York apartment. The actress had appeared on the cover of Time magazine in the 1930s — I guess collectors like that sort of thing. Last week Soboroff picked up a typewriter used by Truman Capote and earlier this month he reported an acquisition from Tom Hanks.
