Description: [TV] Harry Crane (1914-1999) comedy writer who helped create the long-running and perpetually rerun television show ''The Honeymooners,'' featuring Jackie Gleason. Besides writing for Mr. Gleason, Mr. Crane concocted gags and routines for Jimmy Durante, Abbott and Costello, the Marx Brothers, Milton Berle, Jerry Lewis and others. He also wrote jokes for singers like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Dinah Shore and Perry Como, for television specials featuring Alan King and for Dean Martin's ''Celebrity Roast'' television series. Among his screenplays were ''Air Raid Wardens'' (1943), starring Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, ''The Harvey Girls'' (1946), with Judy Garland and Angela Lansbury, and ''Song of the Thin Man'' (1947), starring Myrna Loy and William Powell. Brief TLS, 1968, to Peter Lawford [actor]. "Dear Peter, Thanks for courtesy extended to my daughter and her husband. Stay well - there's a shortage of nice guys. Warmly, Harry." Accompanied with signed bank check from Harry Crane to Peter Lawford. Lawford never cached this check. Fine.
