GENE PERRET
Typed Letter signed: "Gene", 1 page, 8½x11. Westlake Village, California, 1998 August 10. On personal letterhead to actress/comedienne Phyllis Diller. In full: "I recently did an interview with John Lahr for an article he was doing about Bob Hope. John had just come from your house and told me that you showed him the slide rule that Ihad made into a trophy for you...almost 30 years ago. I was very touched that you will still have that memento. And within reach, too. That reminded me that I should once again thank you for your help. So many wonderful things have happened to me - working with and learning from you, being associated with Bob Hope, meeting fascinating people through the years, going to interesting places, making more money than I ever dreamed I would, having the thrill of making people laugh. Most of this was due to your inspiration and generosity. I just wanted you to know that I haven't forgotten everything you've done for me and my family and I never will. Thanks again. Love". Gene Perret was the head comedy writer for Bob Hope, must have known Phyllis Diller well, since she appeared in three of Hope's films and 23 of his comedy specials. Perret, also a screenwriter for TV sitcoms, wrote Successful Standup Comedy (1994). In this letter Perret gives Diller a generous share of credit for his success. Lightly creased. Faint ink transfer in blank lower margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
