Rita Hayworth's Letter from Harry Cohn Regarding Gilda, 1946 A two-page typed letter on Columbia Pictures Corporation letterhead, dated March 19, 1946, in which the president of the studio writes a note to his star about why she shouldn't be discouraged by the critics. In part: "Why would you weigh the opinion of a couple of probably impotent guys against the hundreds who have seen the picture and told you that you were absolutely great?" Cohn goes on to quote lowly opinions of critics from "the greatest thinkers of all times" and ends on an upbeat note of "I am very excited by your performance in GILDA... You should be dancing in the streets, baby. I am." Signed "Harry" in the lower right corner by Cohn in black fountain pen ink. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
