The actress signs a letters to John Willis, Editor of Theatre World, apologizing for the delay in sending a photograph
Autograph letter signed: "Lila Kaye", in black ink, 1 page, 7¼x10½. November 25, 1981. In full: "Dear Mr. Willis, So sorry for the delay in writing to you, Just didn't have a photo, do hope the enclosed one will suffice [item not enclosed]. Happy Thanksgiving. Best wishes". English actress Lila Kaye (1929-2012) was known for her portrayals of American characters due to her ability to adapt a very convincing American English accent for her roles. Beginning her career in England, Kaye appeared mostly in screen and film productions, having a number recurring roles on television, in shows such as David Copperfield (1966), The Flaxton Boys (1970), and My Son Reuben. In film, she most notably appeared in the 80's hit An American Werewolf in London (1981) as the barmaid who ultimately decides to try and scare off the two young Americans. Kaye also performed off the screen, appearing in a number of Royal Shakespeare Company productions, and one Broadway production of The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby (1981). John A. Willis (1916-2010), active in Theatre World from the beginning, became its chief editor in 1965, holding that position until 2008. Willis is regarded as one of the foremost theatre and film historians of the 20th century. While producing (and presenting) the annual Theatre World Awards, Willis also served on the nominating committee for the Tony Awards. Theatre World, which received its own Tony for Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Heavy creases on left margin. Corner lightly worn and creased. Light surface creases throughout. Tear on top right corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
