#40 - Barbara Bush Estimate: $200+

The first lady honors Stanley Kramer: "Your films help us re-examine our values and better understand the importance of cherishing our freedoms—no wonder they have won 85 Oscar nominations and 16 Oscars"

TLS, one page, 6.25 x 9.5, White House letterhead, March 25, 1991. Letter to director Stanley Kramer, in part: "It is a special pleasure to join with your many, many friends and admirers in applauding your selection by the American Foundation for the Performing Arts as this year's recipient of its Lifetime Achievement Award. This prestigious award is going to an accomplished artist indeed, and it could not be given at a more appropriate time than on the night of the 63rd Annual Academy Awards. As one of the foremost producer-directors of our time, you have won acclaim from both your peers and the general public, and your work has come to symbolize much of the best our country has to offer. Your films help us re-examine our values and better understand the importance of cherishing our freedoms—no wonder they have won 85 Oscar nominations and 16 Oscars…so far. George Bush and I congratulate you on this deserved and fitting tribute to your brilliant career, and we wish you continued success in the years to come." Bush adds a handwritten postscript, "Such congratulations and thank you for hours of pleasure!" In fine condition, with a strip of tape along the top back edge.
