JAMES HILTON. Typed Letter signed: "James Hilton", 1p, 8¼x10¾. Culver City, California, 1941 February 14. On letterhead of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures to Keith Baker, Baker Paper Co., Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Accompanied by matching envelope (6½x3½) typed to same addressee. In full: "I had just sent you a postcard when your very charming gift arrived, which I most warmly appreciate. Best wishes, Yours sincerely". English novelist James Hilton (1900-1954) used his headmaster father as one of the inspirations for Goodbye Mr. Chips (1933). Several of Hilton's novels were turned into films, including Goodbye Mr. Chips and Lost Horizon (1934). Shangri-La, the name Hilton gave to his lost village in the latter novel, entered the language as President Franklin Roosevelt's name for the Presidential retreat now called Camp David and as a general term for a utopian community. Hilton won an Oscar for his screenplay for the film Mrs. Miniver (1942). Horizontal and vertical folds. Envelope opened at right edge. Overall, fine condition.
