    Letter from John Van Druten. A letter to Jeanne De Casalis from John Van Druten, who wrote the plays Bell, Book and Candle and I Am a Camera (on which the musical Cabaret is based) and did Hollywood screenplays, including uncredited work on Gone With the Wind. The double-sided undated letter in black ink on his Hanover Square stationery, to Jeanne De Casalis, congratulating her on a play she'd written and performed the previous night. As Van Druten adds, "My congratulations...extend equally to Colin," likely referring to the play Let's Leave It at That, which Colin Clive and Jeanne De Casalis wrote and acted in together in the late 1920s. In Excellent condition. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
