    Description

    Rod Serling Signed Letters (1961-70). Featured in this lot are nine typed letters and one autographed postcard signed by writer and "Twilight Zone" Rod Serling. In a February 21, 1961, letter to "Playboy" magazine editorial director A. C. Spectorsky, he states that he is "far from being adverse to the notion of doing something for "Playboy," I'm rather excited by the prospect ... Finding the time to do such is yet another story. This damned "Twilight Zone" occupies the bulk of my working day ... " In more fiery language relating to the magazine's interview with American Nazi Party founder George Lincoln Rockwell, he writes: "I anticipate that you people shall probably be roundly roasted for the recent Rockwell interview ... My guess is that in this case exposure is tantamount to education and education, here, is a most salutory instruction into the mentalities, the motives and the modus operandi of an animal pack who are discounted by the aged maxim that 'it can't happen here.'" With COA from PSA/DNA.
