Letters and postcard, 1969, 1977, 1978 and 1983 (postmark), to Siân Phillips' second husband Peter O'Toole. The material comprises: telegram [incomplete] (?possibly from director Herbert Ross) to Peter O'Toole relating to the successful preview of the film Goodbye Mr Chips (1969), in which O'Toole played the title rôle; letter from Robert Powell, headmaster of Sherborne School, Sherborne, Dorset during the filming there of Goodbye Mr Chips; letter from novelist Alun Richards; letter from US film producer Jules Buck; letter from a correspondent signing herself 'M. [treble clef] O.' (most likely a Mexican woman named Anna, who became O'Toole's mistress and was renamed by him 'Malinche'); postcard from a woman named 'Kate', possibly another mistress of O'Toole's; and letter from Siân Phillips' mother Sally Phillips. The letters signed 'M. [treble clef] O.' and 'Kate' are annotated by Siân Phillips.
Undated note from Peter O'Toole to 'John', most likely actor and theatre director John Gielgud, with whom O'Toole starred in the 1979 film adaptation of Gore Vidal's original screenplay 'Caligula', the media response to which is referenced in O'Toole's note.
