The stage actor sends John Willis his publicity photo for Theatre World
Autograph letter signed: "Eli Mintz", in black ink, 1 page, 5¾x3½. New York City, New York, December 16, 1973. In full: "Dear Mr. Willis, This is the most recent portrait I have, but if I will take another one in the near future, I'll be happy to send that one also. In the meantime--all my good wishes to you for a happy holiday and a very happy New Year. Sincerely,". Polish-born actor Eli Mintz (1905-1988) came to the U.S. in 1927, establishing himself in the Yiddish theater. He had a special attachment to the role of Uncle David, which he played in Molly and which he had played in the antecedent (early 1950s) play, film and TV series, The Goldbergs. John A. Willis (1916-2010), active in Theatre World from the beginning, became its chief editor in 1965, holding that position until 2008. Willis is regarded as one of the foremost theatre and film historians of the 20th century. While producing (and presenting) the annual Theatre World Awards, Willis also served on the nominating committee for the Tony Awards. Theatre World, which received its own Tony for Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Lightly toned. Fine condition.
