ROSS HUNTER The award-winning producer pens a letter thanking the recipient for the kind things he wrote and describing his recent hard work in promoting The Art of Love (1965) Autograph Letter signed: "Ross" in blue ink, 1p (front and verso), 5½x7. No place, no date. On Ambassador Hotel, Chicago letterhead. To "Dear Louis". In part: "I've not had an opportunity to thank you for all the king things you wrote about me while I was in NY…". Hunter goes on to describe the efforts he has made to promote his latest picture, The Art of Love (1965). Producer Ross Hunter (1920-1996), born Martin Fuss, was in Army intelligence during WWII before becoming an actor in B-movie outings such as Louisiana Hayride (1944). He went on to become the producer of more than 60 films, most of which were star-studded, lavish productions with lush musical scores that emphasized Hunter's love of "old-time" Hollywood. Hunter had his biggest commercial success with Airport (1970), which won him an Academy Award for Best Art Direction. He was also nominated for Oscars for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Score, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Costume Design, and Best Sound. A few of his other notable films include Magnificent Obsession (1954), My Man Godfrey and Tammy and the Bachelor (both in 1957), Imitation of Life and Pillow Talk (both in 1959), Back Street and Flower Drum Song (both in 1961), The Thrill of It All (1963), Madame X (1966), Thoroughly Modern Millie (1967), and Lost Horizon (1973). Moreover, he produced a number of made-for-TV movies after moving to Paramount in 1974. Lightly toned. Soiling at center which has caused ink to bleed of both front and verso, but writing remains legible. Pencil note in an unknown hand at top edge. Gently creased throughout. Otherwise, fine condition.
