Letter thanking Kitty Carlisle Hart for recommending a doctor, and hoping they will meet again soon. From Kitty Carlisle's estate.
Autograph Letter signed: "ElG", 2 pages (front and verso), 5x8. Weston, Connecticut, 1982 May 26. On personal letterhead to "Dear Lady Kitty" [Kitty Carlisle Hart]. In full: "Just a brief word to thank you so very much for sending me to Dr. Hopp. It has made a great difference in my life! He and his technician are simply wonderful. I am deeply grateful. Aren't you ever going to give another recital here?! I'd love to see you again. I remember your visit to the Blue Room with so much pleasure. But perhaps un de ces jours [French: "one of these days"] I shall have the pleasure of seeing you in N.Y. - or somewhere! With sincere affection". Accompanied by original mailing envelope to Kitty Carlisle Hart in New York City. English-born American actress and producer EVA LE GALLIENNE (1899-1981) was on stage from her teens. She was renowned for her performances of Ibsen's plays. Among her other famous roles was Peter Pan (1928); she was the first Peter to fly on wires over the Broadway audience. She founded the Civic Repertory Theatre of New York, and received a special Tony award in 1964 for her work with the National Repertory Theatre. Le Gallienne was nominated for an Oscar for a rare film appearance in Resurrection (1980), the oldest person nominated for an Oscar until Gloria Stuart was nominated for Titanic in 1997. Neither hiding nor publicizing her lesbianism, she had affairs with many prominent female entertainers. This letter is addressed to, and was in the estate of, versatile singer, actress and TV personality Kitty Carlisle (1910-2007), who was still performing a one-woman show as late as 2006. She was married to playwright Moss Hart until his death in 1961. One horizontal mailing fold through center. Corners lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
