Eric Sinclair (1922-2004) was a prolific stage, television and movie actor, with a career spanning almost fifty years. Sinclair made his Broadway debut in Legend of Lovers (1951) and later as Count Claudio of Florence in Much Ado About Nothing (1952) for which he won a Theatre World Award.

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 Tonyfor Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Corners slightly worn and creased. Ink stamps. Slightly toned.
