I hope to see you soon and, in the meantime, my warmest thanks and best personal regards." Handwritten postscript, initialed: "M." In full: "You're a Sweetheart". Fine condition.

Dancer/actor GEORGE MURPHY (1902-1992) appeared in film musicals of the 1930s, moving to dramatic roles in the late 1940s. He followed a path similar to that of his friend Ronald Reagan: switching party allegiance from Democratic to Republican, serving as President of the Screen Actors Guild and winning election to the U.S. Senate from California in 1964. Murphy served as a U.S. Senator from 1965-1971. Multi-talented entertainer KEN MURRAY (1903-1988) had begun his career as a vaudeville performer and later appeared in feature films, including 1937's You're a Sweetheart and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), on stage and on television. He hosted Ken Murray's Blackouts, a stage show that holds the record as the longest-running show in Los Angeles (1942-1949, 3,844 performances), TV's The Ken Murray Show (1950-1951) and several specials featuring his "home movies" of Hollywood stars and appeared on several TV shows. In the year of this letter, Murray guest starred on an episode of Love, American Style.Two items.
