IRENE WORTH
Actress sends letter of thanks to John Willis, editor of Theatre World, updates him on working with Sidney Poitier
Autograph letter signed: "Irene W." in blue ink. 1 page, 5½x3½. July 3, 1989. In full: "Thank you for your sweet thoughts on my birthday. The film is a joy to do because of the brilliance of Poitier. Incredible director, incredible human being. I'm very lucky. All good wishes - Yours". Irene Worth (1916-2002, born Harriet Abrams in Fairbury, Nebraska) was an American actress. Most of her performances were in London's West End, frequently playing Shakespearean roles at the Old Vic theatre. But she got her start in American stage and won three Tony Awards in the original Broadway production of Edward Albee's Tiny Alice (1961), in Sweet Bird of Youth (1965) and in Neil Simon's Lost in Yonkers (1991). She also appeared in 30 movies and TV shows between 1948 and 1999 received a British Film Academy Award for Best British Actress in the 1958 movie Orders to Kill. 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. Toned. Corners and edges worn and rounded. Pencil notes in bottom margin in unknown hand. Otherwise, fine condition.
