Congratulating Theatre World editor and award presenter John Willis, he suggests that the Oscar and Emmy ceremonies would be better if Willis ran them.
Autograph Letter signed: "Mike", 1 page, 5x4 folded, 5x8 unfolded. No place, no date, but accompanied by his hand addressed envelope postmarked New York, N. Y., May 31, 1970. To "Dear Jack", in full: "Sorry I didn't get a chance to thank you for including me in on the festivities. You were so surrounded after the ceremonies that it was impossible to get near you. When I heard that there were going to be 12 presenters, I wondered if it would end up like the Emmys or the Academy Awards. They should invite you in to get some life into their award nights. Hope you had a wonderful 'rest' out in the Hamptons. Love". Michael Enserro (1918-1981) appeared in 6 Broadway plays between 1948 (Me and Molly) and 1974 (Saturday Sunday Monday). He portrayed ill-fated Bolshevik leader Zinoviev in The Passion of Josef D (1964). He was seen in several of the teleplays of the 1950s, and appeared as himself in Laugh Line (1959). Theatre World, founded in 1945 by Daniel Blum, is America's oldest annual record of Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theatre, referenced by industry professionals, historians, students and theatre fans worldwide. Until 1998, when a separate nonprofit corporation was established, Theatre World's editorial staff bestowed the prestigious Theatre World Awards for outstanding Broadway and Off-Broadway debuts. Screen World (from 1950) and Dance World (from 1966), administered from the same office, furnished comprehensive information on those entertainment genres. 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. Fine condition.
