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 in Viva Zapata! And Lust For Life and also being nominated for your 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 grant my request, as without your autograph, I would consider my collection incomplete.

At the beginning of the 1960s, Anthony Quinn (1915 - 2001) was at the height of his film career, acting 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 out 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 being 16 years old, he showed a lot of determination and maturity to get an autograph from this great movie star who hated it. An exception to your rule.
