        Two Letters, regarding God Bless America

      - A pair of typed letters signed by Irving Berlin ("Irving" and "Irving Berlin"), 1971 and 1972, to Gerald G. Wagner. In the first letter, dated December 1st 1971, and signed in full, Berlin encloses "autographed copies of the program and U.N. song. Other than what you and Leon Leonidoff told me, I have heard of how well the song was received which, of course, pleases me. He goes on, "Now, about the U.N. song. As I told you on the phone, I think it would be mistake to do anything about it right now. However, a situation may arise in the future when it will be timely to officially turn the copyright over to the United Nations. That is, of course, if they want it. Personally, I’m very proud to have written it". The second letter is dated November 21st 1972. Berlin writes, "Mrs. Berlin and I did indeed hear the President’s speech, and, of course, I was delighted with the God Bless America ending." He then notes that he was also deeply touched by the Republican Convention having ended with a rendition of God Bless America. He goes on, "I take it for granted that you, along with millions of other Americans including Mrs. Berlin and myself, are delighted by Nixon’s ‘four more years’. By the way, did you know that this phrase was the title of the second campaign song I wrote for President Eisenhower? The first was I Like Ike." In very fine condition. Letters by Berlin that mention his celebrated patriotic song are rare. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

The bestselling novel was made into one of the most acclaimed blockbuster films, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and featuring Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, and many others. *The Godfather* was first nationally broadcast on NBC in November, 1974, a month before the theatrical debut of the equally acclaimed *The Godfather: Part II*. In 1977 a more elaborate, chronological portrayal of the Corleone epic (combining this film, its sequel, and numerous cut scenes) was edited and televised as *The Godfather Saga* (reportedly in order to raise funds for Coppola's *Apocalypse Now*).
