ROSEMARY HARRIS
The actress pens a letter to John Willis, editor-in-chief of Theatre World, thanking him for his gifts and discussing the holiday season
Autograph Letter Signed: "As Always/Rosemary" 2 pages, 5½x7¾ Penland, North Carolina, 1974 January 15th. To "Dear John [Willis]", in full: "How simply lovely to get your gorgeous fruit cake. It was eaten in one fell swoop! & we do thank you so much. We had a lovely Christmas. Our log cabin rather lends itself to Yuletide cheer & we did our best to fill it with just that. I succeeded in making quite a spectacular Ginger Bread House & several batches of Christmas Cookies for Jennifer's school party. (She was a Christmas tree in the play - not a starring role but she did it superbly!) Having a four old finds me doing all sorts of things I never dreaed of, being a [illegible] mother is one of them! But it is joyful. Much love & so many good wishes for a wonderful 1974." English actress Rosemary Harris (b. 1927) made her West End debut in The Seven Year Itch in 1952, her Broadway debut Troilus and Cressida (1956). In between she appeared in her first film, Beau Brummel (1954) Harris, who trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and the Old Vic, won a Tony as Eleanor in The Lion in Winter (1966) and no less than four Drama Desk Awards between 1972 and 1985. She won an Emmy for Notorious Woman on Masterpiece Theatre, and earned an Oscar nomination for Tom and Viv (1994). She has lived for 40 years in North Carolina with her husband, writer John Ehle. Their daughter is noted stage and screen actress Jennifer Ehle. Theatre World, founded in 1945 by Daniel Blum, is America's oldest annual record of Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theatre, referenced by industry professionals, historians, students and theatre fans worldwide. Until 1998, when a separate nonprofit corporation was established, Theatre World's editorial staff bestowed the prestigious Theatre World Awards for outstanding Broadway and Off-Broadway debuts. Screen World (from 1950) and Dance World (from 1966), administered from the same office, furnished comprehensive information on those entertainment genres. 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. Normal mailing folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
