HUGH O'BRIAN The actor signed this typed letter wishing the recipient a happy holiday season and signs in blue ink Typed Letter signed: "Hugh O'Brian" 1p, 5½x8½. On personal letterhead. Hollywood, California, 1957 December 7. To "Dear Arnold". In full: "Thank you for your letter of December 3rd. I think you are to be recognized for the wonderful work you are doing. It was my privilege to be a part of your great contribution Thanksgiving Day. I hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday season. Kindest regards". Although he appeared in several films in the early 1950s, Hugh O'Brian (1925-2016) did not become a star until he earned the title role in the popular TV series The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (1955-1961). This show, which debuted the same year that Gunsmoke and Cheyenne did, helped usher in a new era of Westerns. For many years after this series, O'Brian resisted offers of Western roles, gradually relenting to appear in John Wayne's last film, The Shootist (1976) and then in TV recreations of his Earp role, including The Gambler Returns (1991). O'Brian starred in another shorter lived series, Probe (1972-1973). Other productions he appeared in include Twins (1988) and Old Soldiers (2016). In 1954, the actor won the Golden Globe for Most Promising Newcomer. O'Brian founded Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) in 1958 and it continues to be an organization that develops leadership skills in high school students across the country. 1½x¾" paper loss in upper right corner from prior mounting. Mounting paper shows through at the other three corners, not touching signature or text, with ½: tear at upper left. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
