INSCRIBED by the play's star, Dustin Hoffman, to agent Mark Fleischman, with a reference to Schisgal's play LUV: “I am grateful (truly) / Luv, / Dustin / Thank you, Mark / (9-1-69).
Hoffman, after years of struggle, had just burst into fame with his portrayal of Benjamin Braddock in Mike Nichols' THE GRADUATE. The titlar role in JIMMY SHINE was Hoffman's first Broadway lead and was followed by his Oscar-nominated role in MIDNIGHT COWBOY.

A fine association, at a critical moment in the career of one of the great actors of his generation.
