SUSAN STRASBERG She writes to a fan, thanking him for his letter and expressing her hope that he has seen her most recent film Typed Letter signed: "Susan Strasberg/ [heart]" in black ink, 1p, 8½x11. No place, 1985 January 10. To "Dear Chuck". In full: "Thank you for writing - it's always nice hearing from my fans. Have enclosed the cards you wanted signed, along with three (3) photos. Trust you caught my recent appearance on 'MIKE HAMMER' - am currently working on a novel 'ELISEBETH RYAN' which should be published by the end of this year. Love & Light -". Enclosures not present. In 1985, Strasberg guest starred on episodes of two TV series, Tales of the Unexpected and Tales from the Darkside. We could find no reference to the novel mentioned in this letter, although Strasberg had previously published Bittersweet (1979), and she would later write Marilyn and Me: Sisters, Rivals, Friends (1992). Her autobiography, Bittersweet, included details about 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 Marilyn Monroe's acting coach), who said that making love to a good actor would be good for her. 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 Hemingway's Adventures of a Young Man. Her other films include The Cobweb (1955), In Praise of Older Women (1978), and The Delta Force (1986). Strasberg also appeared in three documentaries on the life of her friend, Marilyn Monroe, as well as a number of made-for-TV movies. Moreover, she was Patty Toma in the TV series, Toma (1973-1974), and made guest appearances on many series. Lightly creased with folds, lower horizontal fold nicks the descender of the "g" and the top of the heart. Otherwise, fine condition.
