IRA GERSHWIN - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 12/08/1961 - HFSID 55601. Complete with a sketch by Gershwin of a man bowing by the signature!
Autograph Letter Signed: " Ira ", 1p, 8½x11. Beverly Hills, California, 1961 December 8. To Sam, probably his accountant. And I've just remembered that I forgot to thank you for your charming and alliterative telegram on my birthday, so - Tardy (but tingling) thanks for that titillating telegram.
Ever, Gershwin then sketches himself bowing. In 1931, the brothers wrote for their first Hollywood musical, Delicious. After George's death in 1937, Ira worked with a number of other composers, including Jerome Kern (Cover Girl, 1944) and Harold Arlen (the musical remake of A Star is Born, 1954). Nominated for Academy Awards for Best Song in 1937 Shall We Dance? , 1944 (Cover Girl) and 1954 (A Star is Born), Ira also wrote lyrics or the music score for a number of other feature films, including An American in Paris (1951), The Country Girl (1954) and Funny Face (1957).
