Autograph Letter signed: "Aron Kincaid", 1 page, 7¼x10¼. No place, 1970 December 22. To "Dear John" [Willis],in full: "Here is a Christmas greeting in the form of Norma Shearer which I stole from the MGM files for you. [Items not included.] Don't know who the waxen fellow with her is. Also are a few odds and ends of Navarro, Irene Dunne, Marion Davies, etc. as well as a couple of recent shots of yours truly (in case I should appear in a 'flick' in 1971). Happy New Year." The feature film appearances ofARON 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. Pin-size hole in top margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
