The actor sends a requested photograph to John Willis, Editor of Theatre World
Autograph note signed: "Shep Strudwick", in blue ink, 8½x3¾. In full: "Dear John, Here's the picture you asked for [items not included]. Sincerely". Shepperd Strudwick (1907-1983), born John Shepperd and billed that way in his early movies, made his feature film debut in 1938. He played the title role in The Loves of Edgar Allen Poe (1942) and played a Yugoslav guerrilla leader in Chetniks (1943). Prominent roles included a French priest in Joan of Arc (1948) and Adam Stanton, Willie Stark's slayer in All the King's Men (1949). His TV appearances included numerous soap operas. His last year as an actor was one of his best. He was the voice of Homer in the Peabody-winning radio version of The Odyssey (1981), and received a Tony nomination as Best Featured Actor for To Grandmother's House (1981). 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. Top edge slightly worn. Slightly toned. Fine condition.
