Typed Letter signed: "With all good wishes/Dorothy Stickney", 1 page (front and verso), 5x3¾ folded, 5x7½ unfolded. New York, New York, 1978 January 4. On her personal letterhead written to Mr. Bruce Hewitt, New York, New York. In full: "Dear Bruce Hewitt Thank you for your charming Christmas Card. I am sorry to hear such sad news of you, and I do hope the New Year bill (sic) bring you better health. I remember Menard very well and have often wondered where he was and what he was doing. I know it must be hard for you to be so inactive, and I hope the holidays have not been too hard for you to get through." Accompanied by the transmittal envelope, addressed to Mr. Bruce Hewitt, New York, New York and postmarked New York, New York, January 4, 1978. Stage, screen and television actress Dorothy Stickney (1896-1998), who began her career in summer stock and in vaudeville, made her Broadway debut in 1926 in The Squall. Her other Broadway plays included The Front Page and Chicago, but Stickney is best known for starring in Life With Father (beginning in 1939), which was written by her husband, Howard Lindsay. The couple, who were married from 1927 until Lindsay's death in 1968, originated the starring roles after the play, which ran for over seven years on the Great White Way, was repeatedly turned down by other producers and actors. Stickney made her film debut in 1931, appearing in such films as Murder at the Vanities (1934), The Uninvited (1943), The Great Diamond Robbery (1953), The Remarkable Mr. Pennypacker (1959) and I Never Sang for My Father (1970). She also appeared in several made-for-TV movies, including The Homecoming: A Christmas Story (1971), and made guest appearances on a number of TV series, including appearing as a bootlegger on the first episode of The Waltons.
