Autograph letter signed: "Eric" in black ink. 2 pages, 8½x6¼ flat, 4¼x6¼ folded. Original envelope included. April 29, 1986. In full: "Dear John, I appreciate so very much your remembering my birthday, year after year! On this one, I was 64! Mon Dieu! I recently went to my old friend Jane Withers' 60th - that is a milestone. I hadn't seen her in 37 years and we were very close at one time. I often wonder what date is your birthday? Sometime please send it to me. You are now in the throws of preparation for the awards - not an easy task, jen suis sur [I am sure]. How I wish I could be there. One day I will be able to attend. I'm sure it will be the usual smash even though Broadway is in the doldrums if one reads carefully. Encore, merci". 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. He appeared in dozens of movies such as Cyrano de Bergerac (1950), War of the Satellites (1958), and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969). Furthermore, his television credits include Robert Montgomery Presents (1955), Perry Mason (1957) and Days of Our Lives (1979). 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 Tonyfor Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Toned. Corners rounded. Fine condition.
