Alan King writes note to George Sanders
Autograph Note Signed: "To George Sanders/I still think that Gabor made/a mistake by leaving you/Thanks for the Interview/Alan King". 1p. 5x5. King (1927-2004) honed his material working in the Catskills and entertaining New Yorkers with his routine focusing on the frustrations of the middle-class American dealing with bloated, inefficient commercial and governmental institutions. King (1927-2004) toured the U.S. and Great Britain with Judy Garland's variety show, including a command performance before Queen Elizabeth II. He published his first book of jokes in 1962, and continued appearing in various clubs and hotels. He appeared on Broadway in the late '60s, then moved on to films in the '80s and '90s, including Author! Author! (1982), Enemies: A Love Story (1989), Bonfire of the Vanities (1990), and Casino (1995). British actor George Sanders (1906-1972) was married to two of the glamorous Gabor sisters, Zsa Zsa (1949-1957) and Magda (1970). However, this note is probably an example of King's humor. It was formerly in the possession of autograph collector George Sanders, not the British actor. Mounting remnants on verso show through faintly. Imprint of another text (1/8x½-inch) in lower right corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
