Whatever happened to that "perennial juvenile"? It really was very sweet of you as it always is. I received the Awards invitation today - would I could be there! I sometimes I think I cannot bear L.A. one more minute but so far I am stuck. One day before long I'll be back to New York - some way! As ever". 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. Light stains. Otherwise, fine condition.
