In full: "Dear Sam Heaven only knows when I'll be able to get to L.A. but believe me I'd love to have a print of the film. We have a 16 mm sound outfit at home. We did get to see it one night when Pat Frawley had a showing. I still marvel at what you were able to do in giving the illusion of action with those magnificent paintings. I'm very proud to have been a small part of it. Again thanks & Best Regards". Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) had two careers: actor and politician. His first movie was Love is on the Air (1937) and his 53rd and last film was The Killers (1964). In 1965, he wrote his autobiography, Where's the Rest of Me?, a line from his role as Drake McHugh in King's Row (1942). Reagan left his job hosting television's Death Valley Days during the 1965-1966 season, when he entered politics. Elected Governor of California in 1966, he was reelected in 1970. Reagan began his campaign for the presidency and narrowly lost the 1976 Republican nomination to Gerald Ford. He was elected President in 1980 and was reelected in 1984. After leaving office in 1989, he wrote his second autobiography, An American Life. On February 6, 2001, Reagan became just the third U.S. President to reach the age of 90 and the nation's longest living President until Gerald Ford (d. 2006) lived 45 days longer. Lightly creased and bowed, otherwise in fine condition.
