The year that she signed this check, Strasberg appeared in the movies Sisters and The Other Side of the Wind as well as in episodes of the TV series Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law and The Sixth Sense. Actress Susan Strasberg (1938-1999), the daughter of famed Actor's Theater acting coach Lee Strasberg, made her acting debut in 1953 on an episode of Goodyear Television Playhouse. From there, Strasberg, who was 15 years old at the time, would go on to play in a number of early anthology series, and she would break into films in 1955, the year she appeared in Picnic. Throughout her career, Strasberg alternated between the stage, films, and television. She originated the role of Anne Frank in the 1955 Broadway production of The Diary of Anne Frank, for which she was nominated for a Tony Award. Strasberg would also be nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress - Drama for Adventures of a Young Man (1962). Her other films include The Cobweb (1955), In Praise of Older Women (1978) and The Delta Force (1986), and Strasberg also appeared in three documentaries on the life of her friend, Marilyn Monroe, as well as a number of made-for-TV movies. In 1980, Strasberg published her autobiography, Bittersweet, which included her passionate affair with Richard Burton, her co-star in the Broadway production of Jean Anouilh's, Time Remembered (1957-1958). The affair was encouraged by her mother, acting coach Paula Strasberg (who was Monroe's acting coach), who said that making love to a good actor would be good for her. Co-star Helen Hayes, who heartily disapproved, later appeared with Strasberg in Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard (1959). Lightly toned, soiled, and stained. Black ink notation and red ink endorsement in an unknown hand. Bank stamps on verso show through and touch handwriting, but not signature. Folded once and unfolded. Otherwise, fine condition.
