Autograph Note Signed: "Jeane", 1 page, 5½x8½. Washington, D.C., 1984 May 14. Written at lower margin of a Typed Letter Signed to comedienne and actress Phyllis Diller, Los Angeles, California. In full: "You will be hearing from me soon - deadline at the moment - Love you". Dixon's typed letter is on letterhead of her charity, Children to Children, Inc., which bears her facsimile signature. Begins: "Dear Phyllis". In full: "Many, many thanks for the autographed copy of The Joys of Aging & How to Avoid Them. It looks delightful, and I can hardly wait to read it! With all good wishes for your continued success - and many rich blessings --". Diller's book, The Joys of Aging and How to Avoid Them, was first published by Doubleday & Company in 1981. Astrologer JEANE DIXON (1918-1997) became a celebrity after predicting the election and assassination of John F. Kennedy. Her annual predictions were widely publicized, and Dixon wrote seven books as well as a daily horoscope column published in a number of newspapers. Her celebrity clients included Ronald and Nancy Reagan. Dixon was also an influential Washington socialite. Comedienne PHYLLIS DILLER (1917-2012), known for her outrageous appearance, zany outfits, distinctive laugh and a stand-up act that featured frequent references to her fictional husband, "Fang", and zingers about her sex appeal and numerous plastic surgeries, got her big break in March 1955 (at age 37), when she debuted at San Francisco's Purple Onion club. A subsequent appearance on The Tonight Show hosted by Jack Paar launched her national career, which got a big boost after Bob Hope saw Diller in a Washington, D.C. club. A favorite of the comedian, Diller would appear in three of Hope's films and 23 of his TV specials. Diller, who recorded her first comedy record album in 1959, took her groundbreaking "funny hausfrau" act to nightclubs and television variety shows and specials and she also appeared on the big screen. Her feature film credits include Splendor in the Grass (1961), The Fat Spy (1966), Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number! (1966), The Sunshine Boys (1975) and The Silence of the Hams (1994), and she provided the voice of the Queen in A Bug's Life (1998). By 2000, the comedienne, who had trained as a concert pianist before her marriage (1939-1965) to Sherwood Anderson Diller, had appeared as a piano soloist with 100 symphony orchestras across the U.S. Despite retiring from nightclub/stage tours in May 2002 at the age of 84, Diller continued to make films (Motorcross Kids, 2004; Forget About It, 2005) and occasionally appear on TV programs, including two episodes of 7th Heaven (2002, 2003) and a guest shot on The Wayne Brady Show (2004). Lightly creased with folds, lower horizontal fold at six words of writing (all legible). Fine condition.
