ROSS HUNTER
Typed letter from the Academy Award-winning producer thanking the recipient for praising his recent picture: Lost Horizon (1973)
Typed Letter signed: "Ross Hunter" in blue ink, 1p, 5½x7. No place, 6 April 1973. On Lost Horizon letterhead. To "Dear Mr. Manski". In full: "Thanks so much for your letter of March 27th. I would have answered sonner, but have just returned from London where we had the Royal Command Performance for the Queen of England./ I'm delighted that you enjoyed LOST HORIZON, and despite mixed reviews, the picture is doing extremely good business./ Thanks again for your kind words./ Sincerely/ [signature]/ Ross Hunter". 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. Two horizontal mailing folds, one running through signature. Corners and edges gently worn. Creased throughout. ½-inch tear where the lower horizontal folds meets the right edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
