Typed Letter Signed: “Dorothy Stickney” in blue ink.7¼x10½. One page. Place: New York City, New York. Date: August 24, 1989. Addressed to: Mr. Danny Rentz. P.O. Box 698. Louisville, Kentucky 40201. In full: “Dear Mr. Rentz, My deepest apologies for the error. Thank you for the lovely note, and I'm so glad you enjoy my book. With sincere best wishes, Dorothy Stickney.” 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. Stickney died in New York City at the age of 101. Lightly toned. Horizontal mailing fold. Otherwise, fine condition.
