A fervent fan writes John Willis of Theater World about his wish for a filmography on famed rodeo cowboy and stuntman, Ben Johnson.
Autograph Letter Signed: "Scott Robertson" 1 page, font and verso. 8½x10¾. In part: "John Willis, Dear Sir: I am writing in regard to the Screen World series of books. I find these books fantastically put together and very interesting, but also very hard to get ahold of. I am personally very interested in career of actor Ben Johnson and am trying to put together a complete filmography of his work. If you could find the time, Mr. Willis, you could help me very much with this task. I am sure you own a full set of the Screen World, if you could go from Daniel Blum's Volume 1, 1950 to your own Volume 33 1982 and write down the title, release year and character name (if available) for each of his (Ben Johnson)appearances, the information would be invaluable to me. Sincerely yours," Scott Robertson was a loyal reader of Screen World. 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, also 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. Heavily toned and creased in body of letter. Ink bleed on verso. Otherwise, in fine condition.
