Typed Letter signed: "Hector J. Melo", 1 page, 8½x11. Buenos Aires, Argentina, April 16, 1986. In full: "Dear Mr. Willis: I have been purchasing 'Screen World' for the last twelve years, and I want to congratulate you for that excellent publication which is, to moviegoers, an invaluable source of information on all the films shown in the USA, most of which are also released her in Argentina. However, I have not been able to secure Volume 28 (the 1977 Film Annual), in spite of the many requests I have made to the major book stores in Buenos Aires, the city where I live. Consequently, I will greatly appreciate it if you could possibly let me know where in the United States I can locate said book, so I can send for it and add it to my collection. Thanking you in advance for the attention you may give to this request, I remain, yours truly". More research is required on this signer. 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.
