Check no. 627, drawn on her account at City National Bank, Beverly Hills, California, payable to "Blind Made Products" for "$18.86". In the year she signed this check, Strasberg was seen on television as Patty Toma in the TV series, Toma (1973-1974). 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). Ink notation (unknown hand) at top. Faint show-through of bank stamps on verso, not touching signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
