He appeared (unaccredited) in his screen biography, Night and Day, in 1946, the year his musical, Around the World in Eighty Days, ran on Broadway (May-August). Porter wrote over 20 musicals, including Anything Goes (1934), Silk Stockings (1955) and High Society (1956). The writings of the Danish Karen Blixen, pen name Isak Dinesen, include the autobiographical Out of Africa (1937, film 1985). Fold crease not at signature. Fine condition.
