    Description

    Ernest B. Schoedsack Signed Letter Mentioning Fay Wray and King Kong. Ernest B. Schoedsack, co-producer and co-director of King Kong (1933), wrote this letter dated October 2, 1969, on 8.5" x 11" stationery bearing his Santa Monica address and sent to film historian George Turner. Letter in black felt tip includes "...did you see Fay Wray's big spread on Kong in the N.Y. Times of Sunday, Sept. 21? If not, let me know and I'll send you a copy." He signs the letter "Monte." Comes with Schoedsack's hand-addressed envelope. Schoedsack autographs are very rare, and the mention of King Kong and Fay Wray makes this one especially desirable. In Excellent condition.
