BETSY BLAIR
Small 3½x5¼ b/w photo of Oscar-nominated actor Betsy Blair barefoot, with her hands on her hips and in a long black dress with bare shoulders and puffy sleeves, signed "Good luck"
Inscribed photograph signed "To John -/ Good luck/Betsy Blair". 3½x5¼ overall, 3¼x4¾ image, one surface. Blair (1923-2009, born Elizabeth Boger in Cliffside, New Jersey) is probably best known as Ernest Borgnine's plain girlfriend in Marty, a role that earned her an Academy Award Nomination and a BAFTA Award. It was a role that almost never happened, as she was blacklisted by the House Committee on Un-American Activities at the time. Blair only got it because her first husband Gene Kelly threatened to pull out of the filming of It's Always Fair Weather unless she got the role. Blair got her start in show biz while waiting to enroll at Sarah Lawrence College. Her first jobs were in the chorus at the International Casino in New York when she was 15 and in the chorus of Billy Rose's Diamond Horseshoe in 1940 (where she met Kelly). In all, Blair had five Broadway productions to her credit from 1940 to 1960, with three before her film debut, and almost 40 movies and TV shows to her credit between 1947 and 1994. Lightly creased and bowed, otherwise in fine condition.
