Academy Award-winning director (1904-1975) known for Giant, The Diary of Anne Frank, and A Place in the Sun. TLS, one page, 7.25 x 10.25, personal letterhead, April 5, no year. Letter to famed movie columnist Louella Parsons, in full: "At the risk of being repetitious, I would like to again express my gratitude to you, for the interest aroused in my work through your story on the new Hepburn picture. This morning I read with real pleasure your notice of Laddie—For Winnie Wenstrom and me must (whoa! here I go again) thank you for the flattering comment on our efforts. I hope that I am not taking too much of a liberty in sending you this little dash of eau de lilac—I would send flowers but on accounta not knowing Dr. Martin and him not knowing me, I can't run the risk of him getting me wrong." In very good to fine condition, with scattered light creasing and toning. Stevens directed Katharine Hepburn in three films: 1935's Alice Adams, 1937's Quality Street, and 1942's Woman of the Year.
