A letter to John Willis, Editor of Theatre World, written on the verso of an advertisement featuring the actor in a play
Autograph letter signed: "Val", in blue ink, 1 page, 8½x9¼. June 6, 1984. In full: "Dear John- Again your invite came while I was in Europe! Please keep me on your list and let me know if there's anything I can do for you. Love". Val Dufour (1927-2000), born in New Orleans to Parisian French parents, made his Broadway debut in High Button Shoes (1947). He may be best remembered to a wider audience for his starring roles in daytime TV dramas: Walter Curtin in Another World (1967-1972) and John Wyatt on Search for Tomorrow (1972-1979). He was seen in many TV guest spots in the 1950s and 1960s, including 4 episodes of Gunsmoke and many other Western roles. John A. Willis (1916-2010), active in Theatre World from the beginning, became its chief editor in 1965, holding that position until 2008. Willis is regarded as one of the foremost theatre and film historians of the 20th century. While producing (and presenting) the annual Theatre World Awards, Willis also served on the nominating committee for the Tony Awards. Theatre World, which received its own Tony for Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Fold in center. Lightly toned. Corners lightly worn and creased. Small tear on top edge. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
