Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. sends a typed letter asking for more information about an inaccurate article.
Typed Letter Signed: "Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.", 1p, 4¼x6½. No place, 1983 January 13. To George Torres. In full: "Never having seen it before, I am interested in knowing where you got the article about me - with the picture of me on the steps, sword in hand. Could you tell me what publication this came from? [(there are several errors in it).] [handwritten in] I do know that the other photo comes from the book, 'Hollywood Portraits'. Any information you could send me would be most appreciated. Sincerely," Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. (1909-2000), the son of the dashing actor of the 1920s and Anna Beth Sully, the daughter of an industrialist, was raised by his mother after his parents' divorce in 1918. At the age of 13, he starred in Lasky's Stephen Steps Out, an unsuccessful attempt to exploit the Fairbanks name. Although the younger Fairbanks, a movie producer as well as an actor, appeared in some 75 films, his father took little interest in his son's career, and the two did not become close friends until the early 1930s. His feature films included Stella Dallas (1926), Little Caesar (1930), The Prisoner of Zenda (1937), Gunga Din (1939) and Sinbad the Sailor (1947), and Fairbanks also appeared in a number of made-for-TV movies and hosted the anthology series, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. Presents (1952-1955). In the 1930s, he was married to actress Joan Crawford. Fine condition.
