Typed letter signed "Adolph Zukor" in blue ink. 1 page, 6½x8½, 1 sheet folded, on Zukor's personalized stationery from the Paramount Building in New York City. January 7, 1964. Addressed to Mr. Joseph Ryback, New York, N.Y. In full: "Dear Mr. Ryback: May I take this opportunity of thanking you and your family for your very nice birthday letter. It was most thoughtful of you to write on this occasion and I am deeply appreciative." Lightly toned and creased. Light transference from engraving near bottom edge. Otherwise in fine condition. Accompanied by: Original mailing envelope. No return address. Addressed to Mr. Joseph Ryback, New York City. Postmarked Los Angeles, California, Jan. 8, 1964. Zukor (1873-1976, born in Ricse, Austria-Hungary, now Hungary), who signed this letter on his 91st birthday, remained Paramount Pictures' Chairman of the Board until his death. On July 12, 1912, Zukor premiered the first feature length film, the 40-minute long Queen Elizabeth starring French actress Sarah Bernhardt. He produced the first American-made feature film, The Prisoner of Zenda, in 1914. In 1917, Zukor combined his Famous Players-Lasky Corporation with the Paramount distributors to form Paramount Pictures. In 1949, an Honorary Academy Award was presented to Zukor, "a man who has been called the father of the feature film in America, for his services to the industry over a period of forty years."
