    Attention: Anne Thompson,
    Dear Anne,
    Just a few words to congratulate you on your papers on Hollywood stars and movies. While being in Toronto for TIFF, would it be possible for you or one of your contributors to obtain an autograph from Georges Clooney, your friend and sending it to my address in Montreal. I know it's quite a challenge but you are good. Thanks

    Francoise
