The film star types and signs a letter citing his award-winning role in Mutiny on the Bounty and his role in Grapes of Wrath
Typed Letter Signed: "Eddie Quillan", 1 page, 4¾x7. Hollywood, California. 1987, October 27. On personal letterhead. In full: "Dear Teacher...here is my report card: My favorite motion picture is the original "MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY" starring Clark Gable, Charles Laughton, with Franchot Tone, Donald Crisp and myself, playing the part of Thomas Elinson, for which I won the Screen Actors Guild Award, the first time (and only time) this award was given to an actor who did not star in the picture. "MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY" will live on for years as one of the great classics and I am proud to have been in it. I enjoyed working with Charles Laughton and Franchot Tone but to work and to have so much fun off-screen with Clark Gable gave me a tremendous amount of joy...he was a great guy. I also enjoyed working with Henry Fonda in "GRAPES OF WRATH" in which I played Connie Rivers. This, of course, was a classic, too. I heard that this film played more often in Russia than any other country in the world. They wanted to show their people how poor the people in America were and how they had to live. Sorry I haven't got an apple for you, so please accept the above instead." American actor Eddie Quillan (1907-1990) made his first major feature-film appearance when he co-starred in The Godless Girl (1929). He went on to star in such films as The Sophomore (1929), Noisy Neighbors (1929), Big Money (1930) and The Tip-Off (1931). Among his more memorable credits as a supporting actor were Mutiny on the Bounty (1935), Young Mr. Lincoln (1939), The Grapes of Wrath (1940) and It Ain't Hay (1943). Quillan remained active into the 1980s, appearing as a regular on the TV sitcom Julia (1969-1970). Normal mailing fold. Otherwise, fine condition.
