DENNIS PATRICK HARRISON
Accomplished stage and television actor sends Daniel Blum, founder of Theatre World, a letter that gave a little more information about himself and his career
Typed letter signed: "Dennis Harrison" in blue ink. 1 page, 7¼x10½. May 24, 1950. New York City, New York. In part: "Dear Mr. Blum, When I received your biography file form I was delighted. But when I read it over I was dismayed at how little information I could impart. Not having made my Broadway debut as yet (officially) and my theater apprenticeship is rather alight, I look on all I have written thereon and blue for shame. Peculiarly enough I have made a decent and sometimes better living in show business for three of the three and a half years I've been in it. My wife is completely responsible for all of it. She has helped me in avoiding many pitfalls and in steering me round many of the usual delays. / Many thanks again for your kindness and interest. I hope someday to prove you right. Sincerely yours". Actor Dennis Patrick Harrison (1918-2002), known professionally as Dennis Patrick, has appeared prolifically on the stage and screen. On Broadway he made his debut in the comedy The Wayward Saint (1955); Harrison also performed in Saint Joan (1956), The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat (1967), and Children! Children! (1972). He has had countless television appearances in shows such as Perry Mason (1959), Dark Shadows (1967), and Dallas (1979); as well as in movies including Joe (1970), Chances Are (1989), and The Air Up There (1994). 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. Toned. Stained in top margin. Staple puncture in top left corner. Rip in top margin. Light surface creases. Corners rounded. Otherwise, fine condition.
