Typed Letter signed: "Mark", 1 page, 7¼x10½. Hollywood, California, 1981 January 27. On letterhead of Goodson Todman Productions West to actress/comedienne Phyllis Diller, Los Angeles. In full: "It was such fun seeing you the other night, and it was not only a kick for me - I guess none of us ever get too old to be delighted at surprise parties -- but my mother was very, very impressed by you. And thank you for the wonderful bottle of wine. It was most thoughtful. Affectionately". In 1946, five years after Mark Goodson (1915-1992) teamed up with producer Bill Todman in New York, they sold their first game show, Winner Take All, to a radio station; it became the first Goodson and Todman show to be televised, debuting on CBS on July 8, 1948. Before Todman's death in 1979, the duo had launched such successful shows as What's My Line? (1950), I've Got A Secret (1952), The Price is Right (1956), To Tell the Truth (1956), Concentration (1958) and Password (1962). Goodson, who won an Emmy Award for Lifetime Achievement in 1990, was posthumously inducted into the Hall of Fame of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in 1993. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
