GEORGE CUKOR. TLS: "George Cukor", 1p, 7¼x10½. No place, 1973 October 5. On his personal letterhead to Mr. Raskin. In full: "Since 1936 I've made it a practice never to advertise. I must therefore say no to your kind offer. It's most praiseworthy of Commonwealth Theatres to take a 'positive attitude of creative showmanship.' The Industry could certainly use it at this time. All good luck to you in this fine effort." George Dewey Cukor (1899-1983) moved from stage directing to Hollywood in the early 1930s. One of the greatest film directors, he was especially gifted at getting the most from actresses. He earned a Best Director Oscar for My Fair Lady (1964) and was nominated for four others: Little Women (1932-33), Philadelphia Story (1940), A Double Life (1947) and Born Yesterday (1950). Among his other highly praised efforts were Dinner At Eight (1933), David Copperfield (1935), Gaslight (1944) and Love Among the Ruins (TV, 1975). Lightly creased. Horizontal fold touches the "G" in George. Overall, fine condition.
