DONALD RANDOM MURPHY
The actor writes a letter giving a brief history of his acting career to John Willis, Editor of Theatre World
Autograph letter signed: "D.R.M.", in pencil, 5¾x7¾. In full: "Dear Danny - Sorry the delay - of course I lost the application blank you gave me! Perhaps, however, the following information will suffice". Donald Random Murphy (1918-2009) was an actor of stage and film, beginning both careers almost consecutively in the early 1940's. However, his career on stage began more triumphantly, appearing in several Broadway plays, including Janie (1942), For Keeps (1944), and later a starring role in The Time of the Cuckoo (1952). He won a Theatre World award in 1945 for his work on stage. After Broadway, Murphy focused more heavily on television, appearing in Cavalcade of America (1954), The Loretta Young Show (1953), and The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (1957). 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. Staple in top left corner. Fine condition.
