The late comedic actress writes to a friend
Typed Letter Signed: "Jean". 1½p, 5½x8½. Palm Beach, Florida, 1984 January. On Royal Poinciana Playhouse stationery, to Stella, in part: "I want to thank you will all my heart for your eloquent expression of sympathy and affection. Friendship and compassion do bring comfort...." And, in her hand: "Sorry this response is long overdue. Saved your letter. I open at Paper Mill Playhouse, Milburn, New Jersey 2/15 for a 5-week run. Maybe you and Laura can see a show! I'll be at the Wyndham Hotel. Love, Jean P.S. You're a good TREE!" From 1971-80, each week the popular TV sitcom All in the Family was heralded by the glass-shattering off key singing of Edith Bunker, aka "Dingbat." This obscured the fact that the woman who so brilliantly portrayed Edith (earning her Emmy Awards) not only possessed a lilting, well-modulated singing voice, but also was as far removed as possible from a "dingbat" in real life. Jean Stapleton (1923-2013) endeared herself to Broadwayites with her wistfully funny characterizations in the SRO musicals Damn Yankees, Bells Are Ringing, and Funny Girl, roles that she would carry over into the film versions of these hits. Most of her onscreen work could be found in New York-based movies (Something Wild, Up the Down Staircase, Klute) and TV series (Car 54, Where Are You, The Defenders, The Patty Duke Show). Fold creases. Fine condition.
