EDDIE CANTOR
Eddie Cantor signs a letter requesting from Jack Katz the contribution's that Perry will make for the Dr. Jonas Salk proposed television program "Something To Remember".
Typed Letter Signed: "Eddie Cantor", 1p, 7¼x10½. No place, 1962 September 6. On imprinted letterhead to Mr. Jack Katz, New York City, New York. In full: "We have received clearance from AFTRA and The Musician Union. Before going to the networks, we would like to have in our hands, Perry's contribution, either on tape or film, for the Dr. Jonas Salk proposed television program, 'SOMETHING TO REMEMBER.' I would be grateful if you or Perry make the selection, and send it to my office, 140 South Lasky Drive, Beverly Hills, or tell me where I might obtain it. With my heartfelt thanks I am, Sincerely," A rolling-eyed actor with a high-pitched singing voice, Eddie Cantor (1892-1964) didn't truly hit the big time until he was hired for Ziegfeld's Midnight Frolics in 1916. He stayed with the Ziegfeld Follies throughout the 1920s. In addition to his expertly timed comic patter, often appearing in black-face, Cantor achieved fame by introducing such songs as "If You Knew Susie," "Dinah," "Makin' Whoopee" and of course, "Ida," a paean to his wife of 49 years, Ida Tobias. He performed inexhaustible work on behalf of dozens of charities, most prominently the March of Dimes, and regularly put his career on the line on behalf of various actors unions' activities. Lightly creased with folds, horizontal fold through signature. Pencil note (unknown hand at upper left edge). Overall, fine condition.
