MARIE WINDSOR The actress pens this letter to the American Museum of Historical Documents in which she reveals what she considered to be her most important role Autograph Statement signed: "Marie Windsor", in black ink, 1p, 7¼x10¾. No place, 1984 November 12. On sheet imprinted with her name to The American Museum of Historical Documents, (Las Vegas, Nevada). In full: "In my opinion the most important role in my career was the part of Sherry in 'The Killing.' It was the first full length movie ever made by Stanley Kubrick. Mr. Kubrick had seen me in a 'sleeper' film I had made entitled 'Narrow Margin.' Apparently he had stated, "I want her (Marie Windsor) to play Sherry." Subsequently he was kind enough to postpone the starting date of 'The Killing', to accommodate me. I had committed myself to do another film which overlapped it's [sic] schedule with Mr. Kubrick's film. Although this picture was made in 1956 and released in 1957, I still get fan mail from people who have seen it in art theaters and from people in other countries who have seen it for the first time or remember it. In 1957 I won the Look Magazine Award for Best Supporting Actress in 'The Killing.'" In the year she signed this letter, Windsor was a guest star on two television series, Scarecrow and Mrs. King and Simon & Simon. Although Marie Windsor (1919-2000), born Emily Marie Bertelsen, said her favorite films were Hellfire (1949), The Narrow Margin (1952) and The Killing (1956), the actress and expert horsewoman is best known for her roles in "B" Westerns in the 1940s. Her long list of feature films includes Song of the Thin Man (1947, her first featured role), The Fighting Kentuckian (1949), The Eddie Cantor Story (1953), Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1955), Cahill U.S. Marshall (1973), and Freaky Friday (1976). Windsor also appeared in a long list of TV series from 1952 (The Unexpected) to 1991 (Murder, She Wrote), making repeat guest-starring visits to such shows as Hawaiian Eye, Perry Mason, Adam-12, and Simon & Simon. Windsor, who served as a director of the Screen Actors Guild for 25 years, died the day before her 81st birthday. Slightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
