DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS, JR
Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. sends a typed letter of thanks for the Charles Chaplin cassette and magazines.
Typed Letter Signed: "Doug Fairbanks, Jr.", 1p, 8½x11. New York, New York, 1990 May 31. To Mr. Mel May, Mel May Productions, Sherman Oaks, California. In full: "Thanks for keeping me up to date on what's going on in your part of the world. My best regards to Richard Schickel when you see him next. I have had a hectic month of traveling in May but the June schedule doesn't look so busy, so maybe I can get caught up a bit. I might even get in a trip to London. I appreciate you sending me the Charles Chaplin cassette, as well as the magazines, etc. Caleb is back working in palm Beach these days, but my Assistant, Kay Hutchins, who also worked for me in Palm Beach for many years, has come to New York to help me out - so life goes on! Hope all is well with you. Keep in touch. As ever," 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. Lightly creased with folds, through signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
