The multi-BAFTA award winner writes to Theatre World editor John Willis.
Autograph Letter signed: "Denholm Elliott", 1 page, 5x7. B. A. M., 1977 April 28. To "Dear John Willis", in full: "Here as requested my picture. [Items not included.] yrs". English character actor Denholm Elliott (1922-1992) won three consecutive BAFTA awards as supporting actor: Trading Places (1983), Private Function (1984), and Defence of the Realm (1985). He received an Oscar nomination for A Room with a View (1985). Early in his film career, Elliott was often cast as sleazy characters - an abortionist in Alfie (1966) and a washed-up director in The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (1974). He acquired a more benign image after his portrayals of Marcus Brody in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). Elliott was married twice, to actresses Virginia McKenna and Susan Robinson. Bi-sexual, he died of complications from AIDS. 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. Top edge frayed from binding. Otherwise, fine condition.
