Signing with her married name, the actress sends her regrets to John Willis, editor of Theatre World.
Autograph Letter signed: "Olga Bellin Roebling", 2 pages (front and verso), 5¾x4 closed, 5¾x7¾ open flat. Accompanied by envelope addressed in her hand to John Willis in New York City, postmarked New York, N. Y., May 15, 1986. On personal letterhead, in full: "Thank you kindly for your invitation to the Theatre Awards Party. Both Paul and I will be working on May 29th. He's finishing a mini-series that's filming in N. Y., and I'll be working on a movie in New Hampshire. You're very dear to include me in your invitations. We're truly sorry not to be able to be there. Warmest regards". Olga Bellin (Roebling), 1933-1987) was a veteran stage and screen actress who portrayed Margaret More in the original Broadway production of A Man for All Seasons (1961). Her TV credits, extending over three decades (1957-1986), included a mix of teleplays and series guest spots. Her husband, actor and director Paul Roebling, directed Tomorrow (1972), in which she co-starred with Robert Duvall. He also directed her on stage in Zelda (1984). 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. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
