Re "Richard Kiley; Epitomized 'Man of La Mancha,' " obituary, March 6: My first contact with Richard Kiley was in the winter of 1969 as a graduate student on semester break visiting the Big Apple for the first time. My fiancee was meeting me in Manhattan for a pre-wedding shopping spree, the first of many in our years of marriage. A relative provided us with center circle seats to "Man of La Mancha." Dinner at Mama Leone's, a bottle of Chianti, the magic of our first time in a Broadway theater and Kiley's hypnotizing voice took these two Fairfax High School kids to heights unknown before or since.

"Van Gogh was a great inspiration for me, a guy for whom life was work and work was life. I wanted to be like him, except I didn't want to go nuts and cut off my ear." — Samuel Fuller It seems only appropriate that the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's "Fuller at Fox" film series opens Friday with the most accomplished work Samuel Fuller made for the studio, 1953's "Pickup on South Street." Richard Widmark plays a pickpocket who makes a big mistake when he accidentally steals a roll of microfilm that the communists want.
