Description

Content-rich letter from Laurel on missing "Mr. Hardy" and not having a favorite L & H film—"I was never fully satisfied with any of them to be frank"

TLS, one page both sides, 7.25 x 10.5, March 12, 1958. Letter to Lee McNutt, in part: "Please to know you get so much pleasure & enjoyment seeing the L&H comedies. Yes, it's too bad these films are so badly edited on TV, it's necessary to cut them down of course to make time for commercials, but I think they could be cut down more intelligently….I have no particular favorite pictures, I was never fully satisfied with any of them to be frank. Yes, I was born in England & came to this Country in 1910 in a show with Charlie Chaplin. I was born in a little Town called Ulverston, Lancashire. (near Lake Windemere)…It was indeed sad about Mr. Hardy, I certainly miss him after the many years of happy association. No, we seldom shared pastimes. He liked to play Golf, card games & horse racing, my big hobby was deep sea fishing (Swordfish etc.)." In fine condition, with slightly irregular faint toning. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope.
