    Description

    An Orson Welles-Received Letter from Peter Bogdanovich, 1962. One page, typed on personalized stationery, dated "January 26, 1962," reading in part "Dear Mr. Welles, / ...I have directed for the stage here in New York and my / primary ambition (I am twenty-two) is to make movies only a / fraction as good as yours. I look forward with great impatience / to seeing your film of Don Quixote;" signed in black ballpoint ink in the lower right corner by the future Academy Award-nominated director -- an interesting early letter from one of Welles' many acolytes who went on to become a success himself; included with a letter from Beatrice Welles indicating she consigned this lot directly to Heritage Auctions. (Please note this letter is somewhat wrinkled and dirtied due to age.)
    10 1/2" x 7"

    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!
