SAMUEL NATHANIEL BEHRMAN AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED, "Sam", on 3 x 2 cream colored card, by American playwright, screenwriter, and longtime writer forThe New Yorker. This is probably a card that he wrote to accompany a gift. It has some creative language that is hard to understand: "Just a little...feeling, dear, and because ...so well-read! Sam". In fine condition.
Samuel Nathaniel Behrman (1893-1973) was an American playwright, screenwriter, biographer, and longtime writer for The New Yorker. From the late 1920s through the 1940s, S. N. Behrman was considered one of Broadway's leading authors of "high comedy," was often produced by the famous Theatre Guild, and wrote for such stars as Ina Claire, Katharine Cornell, Jane Cowl, and the acting team of Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne. In Hollywood, Behrman enjoyed a lucrative second career as a screenwriter. He wrote screenplays for Greta Garbo, including Queen Christina, Conquest, and her final film, Two-Faced Woman. Behrman's columns for The New Yorker included profiles of such notable figures as composer George Gershwin, Zionist leader Chaim Weizmann, and entertainer Eddie Cantor.
