Autograph Letter signed: "Robin Bailey", 1 page, 7x9. London, 1984 July 17. On personal letterhead to Todd Axelrod, Las Vegas, Nevada. In full: "Thank you for your kind and flattering invitation in your letter of 19 June. I am now trying to assemble a suitable collection of pictures, as you asked, and will forward them as soon as they are available. Best wishes. Yours sincerely". Accompanied by Autograph Envelope addressed in his hand. English actor Robin Bailey (1919-1999) often played upper-class, tradition-bound Englishmen, like his Justice Graves in Rumpole of the Bailey, but was fondly remembered for his Uncle Mort in BBC-TV's I Didn't Know You Cared (1975-1979, and afterwards on radio). He played Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain in The Gathering Storm (1974). Bailey, who bore a resemblance to Rex Harrison, was a surprise choice to play Henry Higgins in the first Australian production of My Fair Lady, and proved a big success there. Bailey was a popular reader on audio books, including the novels of Agatha Christie and Neville Shute. Staple holes at top left corner. Three horizontal folds. Slightly creased. Ink note (unknown hand) at bottom left corner (not affecting signature). Otherwise, fine condition.
