1966 letter to an autograph hunter, signed by Oscar-winning writer Budd Schulberg and typed on his personalized stationery
Typed letter signed "Budd Schulberg". 1 page, 7x10¼, on Schulberg's personalized stationery. Beverly Hills, California, Nov. 23, 1966. Addressed to Mr. Donald Koos, Chicago, Illinois. In full: "Dear Mr. Koos, Thank you for your warm words of praise and encouragement. An autographed photograph is enclosed. Yours, sincerely, Budd Schulberg". Schulberg (1914-2009), born Budd Wilson Schulberg, had co-founded the Frederick Douglass Creative Arts Center in New York City in 1971. In the mid-1960s, following the riots in the Watts section of Los Angeles, he had also helped found the Watts Writers Workshop. The son of Hollywood movie producer Benjamin Schulberg, the author began his writing career as a publicist for Paramount at age 17, became a screenwriter at the age of 19 and wrote a scathing, satirical exposé of the film industry in his first novel, What Makes Sammy Run? (1941). Schulberg, who won an Academy Award for his screenplay for the Academy Award-winning film, On The Waterfront (1954) also wrote the screenplays for A Star is Born (1937), Nothing Sacred (1937), Little Orphan Annie (1938), Winter Carnival (1939, based on his story), A Face in the Crowd (1957, based on his story) and Wind Across the Everglades (1958, based on his story), and was the author of The Harder They Fall (book, 1947; film, 1956). A life-long fan of boxing, Schulberg, who compiled some of his fight stories in Sparring With Hemingway and The Hardest Games, is the only non-boxer honored as a "Living Legend of Boxing" by the World Boxing Association. Lightly soiled and creased. Staple holes in top left corner. Otherwise in fine condition.
