They are as welcome as heady wine./It was particularly delightful/to hear that you are so knowledgeable/about the Bell Science series. Those films/are my own personal pets./Please accept my deep gratitude/for your gracious letter./Warmest regards,/Frank Capra". Mr. Arisian had apparently written Capra about his 1971 autobiography, The Name Above the Title, and about a series of animated educational films that he directed in 1957 for AT&T and Bell Science called the Wonders of Life series. Capra (1897-1991), born in Sicily, was the winner of three Best Director Academy Awards for It Happened One Night (1934), Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936) and You Can't Take It With You (1938). He enjoyed total creative freedom on his sets and also directed, among other films, Lost Horizon (1937), Meet John Doe (1941) and It's A Wonderful Life (1946). Capra was the first Hollywood director to have his name precede a film's title. Letter has been folded in three and unfolded. Top of envelope has been neatly torn. Otherwise in fine condition.
