Autograph Letter signed: "Emil", 1 page, 4¼x7. No place, 1990 April 30. On "A Note from... EMIL SITKA" letterhead, written to "Dear Warren", in full: "Thanks for your kind words, and I hope to learn who your favorites are, and why? I autographed one each of your photos - and would rather suggest that other fans that you'd give the extra copies to would write me individually. I am really more partial to sincere and genuine fans than just collectors. And I like to learn how fans became that way, and what they are like. So tell me! Fondly" Emil Sitka (1914-1998) was one of only two actors (the other being Harold Brauer) to work with all six of the Three Stooges. The character actor appeared in so many Three Stooges films that he was often called "the fourth Stooge."His most famous movie line, "Hold hands, you lovebirds!" comes from the Three Stooges short, Brideless Groom (1947). Sitka, a regular at Three Stooges fan conventions, received frequent requests to repeat the line at fans' weddings. It appears on his tombstone. Sitka continued acting through 1992, appearing in many TV guest spots, mostly in sitcoms like My Favorite Martian. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
