ARCHIVE of 10 TYPED LETTERS SIGNED (TLSs) to Robert Osborne. Stephen SONDHEIM.


1998 -2011. Letters. Fine group of letters from Sondheim variously SIGNED as "Steve," "Steve S," and one as "Merle." All are addressed to actor Robert Osborne in his role as host of Turner Classic Movies with most letters thanking him for various VHS and later DVD copies of films. Occasionally some interesting content: "I can't believe the number of movies Joan Blondell made. It seems she made one out of every two movies that were released before 1940." "I'm particularly grateful for 'London Can Take It,' as I want Jeff to understand what went on during wartime there." In a 2012 letter, Sondheim asks, "Is 'Act One' in the Turner Classic Movies Library? It's a Warner Bros. picture, so I thought I'd ask. James Lapine has been trying to track a copy down because he's writing a play based on the book." Lapine's play based on Moss Hart's autobiography of the same title premiered on Broadway in 2014.
