ROBERT CONSIDINE. TLS: "Bob Considine", 1p, 8½x11. New York, N.Y., 1962 February 22. On letterhead of the Hearst Headline Service to Louis [Sobol]. In full: "Your kind words in Wednesday's Journal American moved me deeply. You are the most gentle man in our business because you are gentle in that side of the business which so often lends itself to scorn and malice. I hoped you would be able to make it to Toots' last Tuesday, but would have understood if you had remained away. I'm so glad you felt up to it. To see you is always a pleasure; to see you at this point in time is an inspiration to all who have known heartbreak and weathered it with less courage than you have shown. God bless -". ROBERT "BOB" CONSIDINE (1906-1975) was a reporter, syndicated columnist and talk show host. Considine, who wrote the screenplay for the 1948 film, The Babe Ruth Story, based on his book, also appeared as a panelist on Who Said That? in 1948, and he hosted his own talk show, Tonight! America After Dark, in 1957. One of F.B.I. Director J. Edgar Hoover's favorite reporters, Considine was the subject of F.B.I. files for several of his writings, including an 11-part series in the Washington "Times Herald" in 1951 relating to the theft of atomic secrets by the Soviets and later articles for "True" magazine. Journalist LOUIS SOBOL (1896-1986), who had been born in the Ukraine but brought to the U.S. as an infant, was a New-York based Broadway columnist for decades. Sobol, who had appeared in three films in 1932-1933, later appeared as himself in Copacabana (1947) and College Confidential (1960). Pencil note (unknown hand) and receipt stamp at upper margin. Lightly creased. Stray pencil mark at upper right edge. Fine condition.
