    Description

    An Orson Welles Pair of Signed Letters, 1951. Evidently never sent; the first one page, typed on letterhead reading "Orson Welles - Productions," dated "May 4, 1951," written to the Spanish Consulate requesting that Associate Director, Mr. Washinsky, be granted "a visa for his stay in Spain" while working on the film "Othello," signed in black fountain pen ink in the lower right corner "Orson Welles;" the second almost identical except written to the Portuguese Consulate; included with a letter from Beatrice Welles indicating she consigned this lot directly to Heritage Auctions. (Please note both these letters are folded once and the stationery is somewhat creased due to age.)
    11" x 8 ½"
