EDWARD ALBEE - FIRST DAY COVER SIGNED 1990 CO-SIGNED BY: ALBERT "HORTON" FOOTE JR., CHARLES FULLER, GEORGE AXELROD - HFSID 223485

 
DRAMATISTS: EDWARD ALBEE III, CHARLES FULLER, GEORGE AXELROD and HORTON FOOTE
Edward Albee (twice once in 1978 and again in 1990), Charles Fuller, George Axelrod and Horton Foote sign a philatelic envelope honoring William Shakespeare.
Philatelic Envelope signed: "Edward Albee/1978", "Edward Albee/1990", "Charles Fuller/1990", "George Axelrod" and "Horton Foote", 6½x3½. First Day Cover honoring William Shakespeare, 5-cent Shakespeare stamp affixed, postmarked Stratford, Connecticut, August 14, 1964, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright (A Delicate Balance, 1966; Seascape, 1975; Three Tall Women, 1994) EDWARD ALBEE (1928-2016) is best known for his 1962 masterpiece Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? The work, his first Broadway play, won him a Tony Award and became an award-winning film (1966). Albee is noteworthy in the theater not only for his works, but also for his efforts to introduce new talent and techniques. HORTON FOOTE (1916-2009, born in Wharton, Texas) won Academy Awards for two of his screenplays, To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) and Tender Mercies (1983), and a Pulitzer Prize in Drama for The Young Man From Atlanta (1995). Foote had a number of plays produced both on and off Broadway and in regional theaters, and his other film credits include the script for Baby the Rain Must Fall, which was based on his play, The Travelling Lady. Several of Foote's plays were also presented on early TV anthology series. CHARLES FULLER, born Charles H. Fuller, Jr, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1939, was the second African American playwright to win a Pulitzer Prize (A Soldier's Play, 1982; film, A Soldier's Story, 1984). The winner of an Obie Award for his play, Zooman and the Sign (1980), he co-founded the Afro-American Arts Theatre in Philadelphia. Screenwriter GEORGE AXELROD (1922-2003, born in New York City) crafted such films as The Seven Year Itch (1955, which he had first written as a play), Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961, Academy Award nomination for his screen adaptation), The Manchurian Candidate (1962) and The Fourth Protocol (1987). During the late 1950s and early 1960s, Axelrod, who had previously had hits on Broadway, was one of the highest paid writers in Hollywood.
