WALTER HUSTON
Walter Huston sends a typed letter of thanks to a fan for the kind letter about "Othello".
Typed Letter Signed: "Walter Huston", 1p, 8½x11.New York, New York, 1937 January 28. On The Waldorf-Astoria stationery. To Virginia O'Donnell, Union City, New Jersey. In full: "Thank you for your charming, complimentary and gracious letter. It was worth all of the effort of 'Othello' to receive letters like that. I shall keep yours, along with a few others we've had, to comfort me in my old age. Thank the young man you spoke of, too, for me. He is mighty flattering." Canadian-born actor Walter Huston (1884-1950), launched his movie career with Gentlemen of the Press (1929), and spent the 1930s playing everything from a Mexican bandit to President Lincoln. In the 1938 Broadway musical comedy, Knickerbocker Holiday, Huston, in the role of a 17th century New Amsterdam Governor, achieved theatrical immortality with his poignant rendition of the show's top tune, "September Song". Throughout the 1940s, he offered a gallery of memorable screen portrayals, from the diabolical Mr. Scratch in All That Money Can Buy (1941) to George M. Cohan's father in Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942). Still, it was only after removing his expensive false teeth and trading his fancy duds for a dusty hobo's outfit that the actor won an Academy Award for his portrayal of the cackling old prospector Howard in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948), directed by his son, John Huston. Fold creases through signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
