Two Letters from Horton Foote
Washington DC. 1949. Two Autographed Letters Signed from two-time Academy Award-winning screenwriter and playwright Horton Foote. Both fine except for two holes along the margins of each letter (affecting a total of three words) where they were placed in a binder. The letters are dated August 31, 1949, and September 6, 1949, shortly before Foote's returned from Washington DC, where he ran an acting school with his wife and his friend, Vincent Donehue. The letters are addressed to "Arnold," likely L. Arnold Weisseberg, a theater lawyer with whom Foote had consulted in the past. In them he mentions the tough time had in running the school, his upcoming visit to New York, and his new play which he wants Weisseberg and actress Judith Evelyn to read. The unnamed play is The Chase, a smashing success that opened at The Playhouse Theater in 1952 with Jose Ferrer directing, and signaled Foote's return to Broadway. An interesting pair of letters from one of America's premiere stage and film writers who was then on the verge of success. .
