The actress types and signs a personal letter to John Willis, chief editor of Theatre World, thanking him for a gift
Typed Letter Signed: "Eva Marie", 1 page, 5x3½. No place, 1984 July 6. On personal letterhead to "Dear John [Willis]," in full: "Many thanks for the beautiful theatre book! I told Gary Cole that he has a few nice photos of himself in the book. He was thrilled. I am working with him in a NBC Mini-Series called, "Fatal Vision." It is his first film and he going to be terrific! Also, thanks for the happy birthday wish. L.A. is all decked out in bright banners reminding us of the festivities coming very soon. We are beginning to get into the spirit of the Olympics. It is very exciting! Do you ever head out this way? If you do, please call: 213 475-9831. We would love to see you. You are a thoughtful fella! Fondly," Actress Eva Marie Saint (b. 1924) entered the hectic world of live television with a coolness and maturity that belied her youthfulness. She made an excellent impression in her first important stage appearance, 1953's A Trip to Bountiful. The euphoria attending her winning the Drama Critics Award was doubled by her 1954 Oscar win for her co-starring stint with Marlon Brando in On the Waterfront. The following year, the blonde, graceful actress appeared with Paul Newman in a TV musical version of Our Town. Saint, who then worked on television before returning to the stage in 1983, won an Emmy Award for her performance in the dramatic special, People Like Us (1989) Theatre World, founded in 1945 by Daniel Blum, is America's oldest annual record of Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theatre, referenced by industry professionals, historians, students and theatre fans worldwide. Until 1998, when a separate nonprofit corporation was established, Theatre World's editorial staff bestowed the prestigious Theatre World Awards for outstanding Broadway and Off-Broadway debuts. Screen World (from 1950) and Dance World (from 1966), administered from the same office, furnished comprehensive information on those entertainment genres. 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 Tony for Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Fine condition.
