He sends his handwritten letter to the American Museum of Historical Documents, speaking causally of his most important roles.
Autograph letter signed: "John Arnatt", 8x11½. Surrey, England, 6, July, 1984. On his personal letterhead to The American Museum of Historical Documents, in part: "You ask for a hand-written letter. If it is that you feel hand-writing reveals personality--you will observe that I have no personality whatsoever. As for roles--after 48 years who can say what was most important? Certainly one of the most enjoyable was last year when I played Maj. Metcalf in that great British Installation "The Mousetrap." This come up each year with an entirely new production--new director & cast. I joined for its 31st year. I enclose a commemorative postcard [not included]--a limited edition, so eventually, it could become valuable..." John Arnatt (1917-1999) was a Russian-born British actor who was popular in film, television and on stage. Getting his first on-screen appearance in Dick Barton at the Bay (1950), Arnatt later found re-occurring roles on My Friend Charles (1956), The Last Chronicle of Barset (1959), The Adventures of Robin Hood (1957-1960) and Emergency-War 10 (1963-1964). He also played in Whistle Down the Wind (1961), Only Two Can Play (1962) and Doctor Who (1978), from which fans remember him as Time Lord Cardinal Borusa. While he never had much fame, Arnatt amassed over 100 acting credits in his 50 year career, and he steadily worked up until his death in 1999, the same year he was seen in his last on-screen appearance in the British serial Dad. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
