The stage and screen actor writes to Broadway producer Charles Forsythe, updating him on his recent activities, signs name in brown ink
Autograph letter signed: "d.j." in brown ink. 1 page front and verso, 7x9¾. Written on personal letterhead. October 15, 1969. Addressed to Broadway producer Charles Forsythe. In full: "Dear Charley, How nice to hear from you again all this time and what a kind and loving letter. Thank you. Our opening has been upped to Oct 20th because of the off B'way jam and the lateness of the season in getting started; I shall, in any case, only play the show for 2 or, at the most, 3 weeks, because I was committed to go and do SCAPIN at Hartford before Scent even came up - since SCAPIN goes into rehearsal on the 28th I shall be commuting to Hartford, Conn. every morning and coming back every afternoon - for as long as I can take it. There is the usual and by now, I find, very boring tension and self-induced panic around the Martinique - a lot of it very unnecessary. The show is about 3 yr. too old - very well produced, tightly directed and with several really fine supporting performances. Katharine whom I adore just can't completely cut a tour de force performance - though she does have moments. She was, on the whole, much better in rehearsal. My real reason for wanting to do the show was to act with my friend for the past three years, John Colenback, and it has practically been the end of our relationship! Very trickey all that. My one experience in Hollywood was a disaster - the fall of '64. I have never been more lonely in my life. I am told that it's very different when you have friends and people with whom you can communicate. Almost two years ago I did the lead in an independently produced film called Double-Stop which I gather was released out there but so far hasn't found a theatre here. Banal script, excellent photography - in color, - in which I play a cello - Ho, Ho, Ho. The astrology business has been extraordinary as I'm sure you can well imagine - and has afforded me a getaway - escape house in Rhode Island - near Westerly - which yet has to be properly furnished. Bought the house in August and since the date of the closing I have had no time to go and play with it - and it doesn't look as though I will in the foreseeable future. Changed my name professionally three years ago and have not stopped working since - including a sell out Hamlet in Cleveland the summer of '68. And now I'm also responsible for an astrology column in the new SHOW Magazine which hits the stands in December - being revived by Huntington Hartford. So listen - stay well. Keep me posted on all your activities - as you may remember, I'm very bad at reading the dailies, weeklies, et. That have to do with our BIZ. Thank you again for your sweet letter. The best always,".
