Signed letter on Lou Grant letterhead congratulating a friend on their recent radio success, going on to recall one of his own favorite radio shows
Typed letter signed: "Ed", in black ink, 8½x11. November 2, 1979. Studio City, California. In part: "Dear John: Many thanks for the enclosures and your nice letter. It sounds like you're going gang-busters on radio (interesting choice of words). I don't know if I said this in previous letters, but I probably am an actor because of radio more than anything else (including movies). Might I recommend to you one great radio show called "Escape" and on it was - for me - the first exposure to Leiningen vs. the Ants....Subsequently they made a movie or two out of it...but nothing compared to the original radio show". Former President of the Screen Actors Guild (twice) and the winner of six Emmys, Ed Asner (b. 1929) was best known as the TV news editor on The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970-1977). When Moore ceased production in 1977, Asner took his Lou Grant character into an hour-long dramatic weekly about a Los Angeles newspaper. The show's title, of course, was, Lou Grant (1977-1982). Asner has over 250 movies and TV shows to his credit, including voiceover work on numerous cartoons, such as the 2009 hit Up. Normal mailing folds. Light surface creases. Corners lightly worn and creased. Fine condition.
