PHIL BAKER
He pens a letter to his dear friend, entertainment journalist Louis Sobol thanking him for writing a positive revue of his work.
Autograph Letter signed: "Phil Baker", 1p, 6x9½. New York, N.Y., n. d. On letterhead of Hotel Gorham to "Dear Louis" [entertainment journalist Louis Sobol]. In full: "It seems you 'jis sense when a feller needs a friend'. It was most gratifying to learn the number of people in my circle of friends who read you. It seems like my phone never stopped ringing. Bless you guy and thanks for the break. Sincerely [signature] P.S. Sid Silvers adds his thanks." American comedian and songwriter Phil Baker (1896-1963) began on vaudeville stages before becoming a popular radio personality. He had his own radio series, The Armour Jester, and later hosted The $64 Dollar Question. He appeared in several Broadway musicals including Music Box Revue, Crazy Quilt and A night in Spain. New York journalist Louis Sobol (1896-1986) wrote a gossip-oriented entertainment column for 40 years, initially focused on the Broadway stage but also covering film and TV personalities for the New York Journal American. His books include The Longest Street, a Broadway memoir and Along the Broadway Beat. He retired in 1967. In 1947, Sobol, Earl Wilson of the New York Post and Abel Green, the editor of Variety, appeared in Copacabana, Groucho Marx's first solo film without his brothers. Sobol had again appeared as a reporter with Wilson and with Walter Winchell in College Confidential (1960). Slightly nicked in lower right corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
