The actor pens a short letter to Editor John Willis, sending updates for his file at Theatre World
Autograph letter signed: "Robert Coote", 1 page, 5½x7. New York City, New York, May 26, 1979. To "Dear Mr. Willis," in full: "Further to yesterday's telephone conversation. Please find the enclosed glossy post card. Unfortunate, I do not have any other photographs with me. Yours sincerely." English stage and screen actor Robert Coote (1909-1982) was usually cast by Hollywood as an aristocrat or British military type. He played Sergeant Higgenbotham in Gunga Din (1939), and Aramis in The Three Musketeers (1948). He interrupted his film career to serve as a squadron leader in the Canadian Air Force in World War II. Coote originated the role of Colonel Pickering in the original Broadway production of My Fair Lady (1956). His last feature film appearance was as one of the critics murdered by Vincent Price in Theatre of Blood (1973). He had a recurring role in the TV detective series Nero Wolfe (1981). 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. Edges worn with small tears. Otherwise, fine condition.
