Angie Dickinson sends a typed letter to a fan about her views on early marriages.
Typed Letter Signed: "Angie Dickinson", 1p, 5¼x7. No place, 1960 May 16. To Fay. In full: "Thank you for your letter. I'm terribly flattered that you would choose me as one that you think might become famous. I have the same kind of hopes that you have, and I intend to go on working very hard to come to the end. I'm enclosing a biography [not present] to answer some of the questions that I don't have to time to answer separately. It's not that I approve or not of young marriages, but in most cases I think the person is much wiser to wait until in their twenties at least because the teens and early twenties are so important to forming what we want in life. And we usually don't find that out until we've lived a few of those years. I'd advise almost anyone to wait till (sic) 24 or 25. Our likes and dislikes are still so subject to change in those formative years. Again, thank you for your vote of confidence. Good luck to all of you in your careers or marriages, whichever road you take. Try to know what you really want - before settling for second best." Written the year after Dickinson got her "big break" in Rio Bravo. In 1960, she would make the films The Bramble Bush, Ocean's 11 and The Sins of Rachel Cade. Angie Dickinson, born in 1931, acted in a few "B" Westerns before making her way to film's A-list after being cast by Howard Hawks in Rio Bravo (1959). Her big screen credits include Point Blank (1967) and Dressed to Kill (1980), and Dickinson made several made-for-TV movies and appeared on a long list of TV series. She is perhaps best remembered for her role as Sergeant Suzanne "Pepper" Anderson in the TV series Police Woman (1974-1978), for which she won a 1974 Golden Globe (she was also nominated in 1975, 1976 and 1977). Dickinson, who once had her legs insured by Lloyds of London for publicity purposes, was married to composer Burt Bacharach from 1965-1980. Lightly creased. Light stains touch the "cki" and "on" of Dickinson. Stained several lines of type (all legible). Overall, fine condition.
