The Oscar-winning actor signs this typed letter of thanks on his personalized stationery in 1955 to the Oscar winning composer Johnny Green.
Typed letter signed: "Paul Muni", 1p, 7¼x9¼. Encino, California, 1953 April 4. To composer Johnny Green. In full: "Although somewhat belated, I hope you will accept my sincere appreciation and thanks for your friendly words, though formal (as expressed in your letter) were nevertheless heartwarming. My contribution was of such minor importance that I feel only your tolerant and good nature could give it an emphasis beyond its worth." PAUL MUNI (1895-1967) was nominated for the 1928-1929 Academy Award for Best Actor for his first feature film role, drifter James Dyke in The Valiant. He was also nominated for Best Actor Oscars for roles in I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang (1932-1933), The Story of Louis Pasteur (1936), The Life of Emile Zola (1937) and The Last Angry Man (1959), winning for his portrayal of Louis Pasteur. JOHNNY GREEN (1908-1989) won Academy Awards for Best Score of Easter Parade, An American in Paris, Oliver and West Side Story. From 1949-1958, he was MGM's Music Director. It is possible that Muni had helped Green in an MGM production. Mounting remnant on verso (light show through at upper blank margin). File holes at upper blank margin. Red file note (unknown hand) at upper left corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
