    Edmund Gwenn Signed Letter (1950). Dated on May 24, 1950, the Miracle on 34th Street, Oscar-winning actor Edmund Gwenn wrote a lengthy letter on MCA Artists letterhead. Gwenn expounds on his love for the city of Edinburgh, Scotland: "...You do not say when you are going to Edinburgh but I am sure you will love it...you may miss some of the creature comforts so prevalent in American homes, but the City itself is so beautiful, so rich in historical associations & so surrounded with the most fascinating scenery that - like thousands of others - you will undoubtedly come under its spell and build yourself a storehouse of memories that will last you for life. The University has turned put some of the finest medical men in the world. I owe my life to one of them...you will find grand rugby footballers among your fellow students. In my youth I played against Scotsmen many times & always enjoyed the matches. So will you...Edmund Gwenn."

    Letter has a small chip and light creases, but otherwise Fine. Measures 8.5" x 11". Accompanied by envelope addressed by Gwenn.
