Autograph Letter signed: "Jim Ivory", 1 page, 8½x11. Claverack, N.Y., 1995 July 3. On personal letterhead to "Dear Miss Hart". In full: "Here is that program of turn of the century songs I told you about from the recital in Hudson. [Item not included.] I've spoken to Richard Robbins about your planned talk/concert at the Metropolitan and he's very interested in speaking with you and possibly getting involved in it. His telephone is 518-851-6672 and there's an answering machine on it. I so enjoyed meeting you the other night and hope we'll see each other again soon. Sincerely". James Francis Ivory (b. 1928) is an American director best known for his work with producer Ismail Merchant and screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala (through Merchant Ivory Films) on movies which won 6 Academy Awards. Merchant-Ivory film became almost a generic term for period pieces, rich in characterization, most set in India or Edwardian England. Ivory himself won the Best Director Oscar for Howard's End (1993). Ivory has directed Oscar-nominated performances by Vanessa Redgrave, Denholm Elliott, Maggie Smith, Emma Thompson, Joanne Woodward and Anthony Hopkins. Richard Robbins is an America composer specializing in movie scores. He has worked often with Merchant Ivory Films. This letter is addressed to, and was in the estate of, versatile singer, actress and TV personality Kitty Carlisle (1910-2007), who was still performing a one-woman show as late as 2006. She was married to playwright Moss Hart until his death in 1961. Normal mailing folds. Corners slightly worn. Ink notes (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
