KITTY CARLISLE. TLS: "Kitty Carlisle Hart", 1p, 5½x7¾. No place, no year, October 8. On her embossed "KCH" stationery to "Dear Miss Hershan". In full: "Thank you so much for your very kind and flattering letter. I too enjoyed the afternoon at The New School and thought it enormously rewarding. I wish I could send a story or anecdote for your book, but I never knew Mrs. Roosevelt well enough to contribute anything of value. With all good wishes, Most cordially yours." Vienna, Austria-born author STELLA K. HERSHAN wrote two books about Eleanor Roosevelt -- A Woman of Quality - Eleanor Roosevelt (first published in 1970) and The Candles She Lit: The Legacy of Eleanor Roosevelt (1993). This letter likely refers to the first volume, which was a collection of anecdotes, stories and memories of the former First Lady and humanitarian. Originally a singer in opera, stage musicals and radio, KITTY CARLISLE (1910-2007), born Catherine Conn, was the only panelist to appear on every version of the game show, To Tell the Truth (1956-2002). Carlisle, who played herself as a To Tell the Truth panelist in the 2002 film, Catch Me If You Can, was also a panelist on What's My Line? (1963-1965). She also made several films, including the Marx Brothers' celebrated A Night at the Opera (1935). Carlisle, who was married to playwright/director Moss Hart from 1946 until his death in 1961, published her autobiography, Kitty, in 1984. She celebrated her 95th birthday by performing her one-woman cabaret act in New York in September 2005 and appearing in San Francisco in January 2006. Lightly creased with fold, not at signature. Fine condition.
