The screen and stage actor sends a short letter to Daniel Blum, founder of Theatre World
Typed letter signed: "Thomas A. Carlin," 1 page, 6x8. New York City, May 13, 1956. To: "Mr. [Daniel] Blum." In full: "I am terribly sorry to be so late in responding to your gracious request for Theatre World information. I was even more flattered than that at your consideration in the first place, and I assure you that it certainly wasn't lack of regard hearing from you, I got married and moved all my baggage, hopes, and household gods [typo from writer] to a new apartment; and your letter did get mislaid. I'm still finding splinters from the impact of all that. Anyway, thanks again for thinking of me in connection with your truly fine publication. Enclosed is a picture and a completed biographical form. On the back of the picture is one of my old resumes, in which you might find further biographical information. In addition, I was especially fortunate in having major roles on the Goodyear and the Alcoa TV shows this year. Again, Mr. Blum, my apologies and my sincerest thanks. Bless." Screen and stage actor Thomas A. Carlin (1928-1991) found his way onto the Broadway stage in 1956 when he made his debut in the drama Time Limit! (1956). An enthusiastic and audacious performer, Carlin appeared in 11 Broadway plays, including Players (1978), A Thousand Clowns (1962-1963) and Great Day in the Morning (1962). Carlin also is credited to over 25 movie and television appearances, including The Equalizer (1986-1988), Caddyshack (1980), Jacob's Ladder (1990) and The Defenders (1961-1964). Along with his acting career, Carlin taught and directed at Rye High School and at Pace University in Pleasantville, New York. Daniel Blum founded Theatre World in 1945, serving as its chief editor until his death in 1964. Aided by Norman McDonald and John A. Willis (his successor as chief editor), Blum also conceived what would become the prestigious Theatre World Awards for promising new actors in the New York stage, Broadway and later off-Broadway as well.
