About this Item

This heavyweight boxing contender is famed for proclaiming "I'll moider da bum" before each bout. ANS, 1p, irregularly-trimmed (roughly rectangular) 7½" X 4" sheet, n.p., n.d. [ca. 1957]. Addressed to "Friend Donald." Very good. Several small tape stains at the margins touching upon several words (including the "to" in "Galento"). "I am down in the Everglades, Florida," Galento writes an admirer, "playing the part of a Character called 'Beef' in a movie called 'Across the Everglades' produced by the Schulberg Productions, look for it this winter in your local movie house. Keep punching." "Wind Across the Everglades," a drama set in early Florida, was written, produced and directed by Budd Schulberg and starred Burl Ives, Christopher Plummer, Gypsy Rose Lee and Peter Falk. It was released in 1958, thereby dating this undated piece to approximately 1958. An interesting item written from on location. Uncommon. Bookseller Inventory # 17514
