Description

    Alfred Hitchcock Signed Letter to Billy Wilder. An astounding letter from one great motion picture director to another! This single-page, typed letter on Hitchcock's personal stationery is dated June 29, 1960, and reads "Dear Mr. Wilder, I saw THE APARTMENT the other day. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed it, and how beautifully made. [sic] I felt this so much that I was impelled to drop you this note. Kindest regards, Alfred Hitchcock." Hitch, whose shocking classic Psycho had opened two weeks earlier, was an excellent judge of quality, apparently, as Wilder went on to win the Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Screenplay for the film. The letter is signed by Hitchcock in black ink, and the "Dear Mr. Wilder" is written in his hand as well. The letter is in Very Fine condition with mailing creases, two punch holes to the top edge, and some minor wrinkling and edge wear. From the Billy Wilder Archive. Accompanied by a COA from PSA/DNA.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
