Best remembered as Felix Unger in the television series The Odd Couple (1970-1975), Tony Randall (1920-2004) was an accomplished radio and stage actor by the late 1940s. He also served in WWII as a member of the United States Army Signal Corps. In the 1950s, he turned towards television to continue his entertainment career, eventually starring in successful comedies like Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter (1957), and Pillow Talk (1959) after a slew of minor television roles. The Odd Couple was the culmination of his television career, leading to The Tony Randall Show (1976) and the Emmy-winning Dear Sydney (1981-1982). He continued acting into the 21st century, with his final role in the film It's About Time (2005). In 1991, Randall founded the National Actors Theatre, a company based in New York City that was active until his death in 2004. This letter was written to, and was in the estate of, versatile singer, actress and television personality Kitty Carlisle (1910-2007), who was still performing a one-woman show as late as 2006. Just like Randall, she appeared regularly on the game show To Tell the Truth, which ran intermittently from 1956 to 2001. She was married to playwright Moss Hart until his death in 1961. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
