In full: "What a heavenly, lovely surprise to get your long, chatty, good letter. Just to bring you up to date, I am leaving in two days with Merv Griffin to attend his tennis tournament at John Gardiner's Tennis Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona; and then to Maine Chance in Phoenix for a week. Tough life??!! Christmas wasn't too exciting as I had the stupid flu since Thanksgiving, but for New Year's we went to Las Vegas and had a happy time. I do wish you were out here. I miss our long, lovely luncheons and long, chatty conversations. We all love you greatly." In 1981, Gabor starred on the TV miniseries, Tales of the Klondike, and she was seen on an episode of TV's Fantasy Island. Hungarian-born stage, screen and television actress Eva Gabor (1919-1995) is best known as socialite turned farm wife Lisa Douglas on the popular TV series, Green Acres (1965-1971).

Her film credits include The Last Time I Saw Paris (1954), My Man Godfrey (1957), Gigi (1958) and Youngblood Hawke (1964), and Gabor also provided voices for animated films, including The Aristocats (1970), The Rescuers (1977) and The Rescuers Down Under (1990, her last film). The first of the Gabor sisters to come to the U.S. from Hungary, Eva was divorced and married five times; sister Magda was married six times and sister Zsa Zsa was married nine times. Eva is credited with saying, "Marriage is too interesting an experiment to be tried only once." RADIE HARRIS (1904-2001) was a long-time entertainment journalist for the "Hollywood Reporter".
