Handwritten letter to John Willis, editor of Theatre World and Screen World, full of praise for the latter
Autograph Letter signed: "Aron Kincaid", 1 page, 7¼x10½. No place, 1971 September 7. To "Dear John" {Willis], in full: "Congratulations! The 1971 Screen World is the best yet. The new print is fantastic. So much easier to read. I applaud your promising personalities section and selection this year especially. The obit section depresses me but I think it is such an important section and your choice of stills is marvelous. My still in the bio section made me very happy. The last two flicks have yet to have theatrical release - except foreign - which seems to be the case so often these days. Just finished working with Henry Fonda in a super spot on his TV show which will be on soon. I promise to drop you a card when it is on. Other than that things here are a giant 'Zero'. Hope this finds you feeling great. More later when there's something to say. Thank you for the book and for keeping me going." The feature film appearances of ARON KINCAID (1940-2011) extended from beach movies, beginning with Girls on the Beach (1970) to the slasher film Silent Night, Deadly Night (1974). His best known TV role was in the final season cast of Bachelor Father (1962). From the 1980s, Kincaid was in demand as a voice actor, with roles including the animated Batman. The Smurfs, Duck Tales and Transformers. Outside the acting profession, he found success as a model and a landscape painter. The show he references in this letter was Henry Fonda's one-season sitcom, The Smith Family. Theatre World, founded in 1945 by Daniel Blum, is America's oldest annual record of Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theatre, referenced by industry professionals, historians, students and theatre fans worldwide. Until 1998, when a separate nonprofit corporation was established, Theatre World's editorial staff bestowed the prestigious Theatre World Awards for outstanding Broadway and Off-Broadway debuts. Screen World (from 1950) and Dance World (from 1966), administered from the same office, furnished comprehensive information on those entertainment genres. John A. Willis (1916-2010), active in Theatre World from the beginning, became its chief editor in 1965, holding that position until 2008. Willis is regarded as one of the foremost theatre and film historians of the 20th century. While producing (and presenting) the annual Theatre World Awards, Willis also served on the nominating committee for the Tony Awards. Theatre World, which received its own Tony for Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Irregularly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
