Typed Note Signed and Electronic Letter Unsigned
1989. June and July, 1989. Written to an editor at Art & Antiques magazine. In the earlier, electronically transmitted letter, Martin says he is "extremely flattered and impressed with myself that I appear on your 100 collectors list. However, being on the list has caused me nothing but grief and I would prefer to slink back into the lower profile I had 'pre-List'..." The second note: "You're right about HG. That was the first worst mistake I ever made in my life." Martin's film credits include The Jerk, All of Me, Three Amigos, Roxanne, Father of the Bride, and others; he is frequently either the screenwriter or the executive producer as well as the star. Both letters capture, albeit briefly, an articulate and courteous grace, even mid-complaint. Folded; else fine, with envelopes. [#014158] $250
