WALLY BERNS The actor pens a letter to the C.E.O. of the Gallery of History, Todd Axelrod, talking about how actors often have to make their own luck in Hollywood Autograph Letter signed: "Wally" in black ink, 1p, 8½x11. Burbank, California, 1984 June 23. To “Dear Todd -”. In full: “Since the middle 1950s my nose has been pointed along the 'yellow brick road' of my acting career. When I first stepped in front of the camera, playing a school kid in a local Florida feature film, then titled, 'A Crowd for Lisette,' starring John Agar and Greta Chi, I had no idea what a bumpy road it could be! But what a thrill! ZAP!!!! I was an instant movie actor - or so I thought, anyway. So, after playing two more small roles in two more features for Empire Studios of Orlando, Fla., I packed my 1938 Cadillac full of my gear and headed West for Hollywood - 'the big time' to 'knock 'em dead.' I soon found that it just wasn't that easy but I did learn, and very rapidly at that, that you made our own luck in Tinsel Town and you got as much out of 'Show Biz' as you're willing to put into it. I always figure that tomorrow will always be bigger and better than ever if I do my best to make it so. (Lots of faith helps too.) Regards. [signature] P.S. Enclosed are a few things that I hope will be of interest." [not included]. Actor Wally K. Berns (1929-1991), who was sometimes credited as Waldo K.
