Description

    A George Marshall-Received Set of Letters from John Wayne, 1973. The first typed on personalized notepaper, dated "August 6, 1973," reading in part "Dear George: / I wouldn't turn you down personally on anything.../that would benefit the Motion Picture Home.../Your everlovin," signed in black felt-tip ink in the lower right corner "Duke," included with its original transmittal envelope (with the stamp torn off); the second typed on same notepaper, dated "December 14, 1973," reading in part "Dear George: / I would be most happy to do a guest shot for you...Sincerely," signed in black felt-tip ink in the lower right corner "John Wayne;" included with its original transmittal envelope -- the Duke evidently being a good buddy to the director based on the content of these two letters.

    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!
