American actor Anthony Quinn fulfills the dream of a young fan who sent a letter asking for an autograph.

Typed letter to a 16-year-old movie fan, Kenneth Morris, New Yorker and autograph collector, to Anthony Quinn, one of his idols, who returned, a few weeks later, the letter with the signature: "Regards, Anthony Quinn" . In English. One page. 18.4 cm x 26.4 cm. United States, October 1960. Yellowed paper, good condition. Single piece.

Dear Mr. Quinn,

As I am very interested in the film industry, I collect autographs from actors and actresses who have been nominated for an "Oscar".

Knowing that you won the award for your performance on Viva Zapata! And Lust For Life and also being nominated for his performance in Wild Is The Wind, I would greatly appreciate it if you would send me your autographed photo or your autograph so I can add your name to my collection.

Mr. Quinn, I am 16 years old and I sincerely hope that you will grant my request, for without your autograph I would consider my collection incomplete.

In the early 1960s, Anthony Quinn (1915 - 2001) was at the height of his film career, starring in some films that would become classics and make him a legend of American cinema: "The Guns of Navarone (1961)", " Lawrence of Arabia (1962) or "Zorba the Greek" (1964) showed the public all his charisma.

Awarded with two Oscars and accustomed to playing the most diverse roles, Anthony Quinn was sought after by the best professionals, working with no less than 46 Oscar-winning actors and actresses, an absolute record.

This fan letter is interesting because it is well documented and polite. Despite his 16 years, he showed a lot of determination and maturity to get an autograph from this big movie star who hated it. An exception to your rule.
