Autograph Letter signed: "Constantin Popescu" 2 pages (integral) 6½x8½. Bucharest, March 25, 1970. To "Dear Sir, in part: "From the start I was thinking to make you clear that the one who's dropping you this letter, under the name of Constin Poescu, film critic, documentarist, steady collaborator for the National Films Archives of Roumania. I'm the author of a dictionary concerning the film personalities, film makers and actors, which is steadily appearing in a Roumanian weekly magazine...". Constantin Popescu was a Romanian film critic, documentary writer, and associate of the National Films Archives of Romania. 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. Normal mailing folds. Moisture defects (lightly smudging the signature). Lightly creased and toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
