Shown hugging George Murphy in a scene from The Big City
Photograph signed: "Betty Garrett". B/w, 10x8. Promotional photo for The Big City (her first film, 1948), with printed caption on verso. Betty Garrett (1919-2011) made her stage debut in Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre in 1938, in a production of Danton's Death, and debuted on Broadway in the 1942 musical revue Of V We Sing. Garrett broke onto the silver screen after MGM saw her performance in another Broadway revue, Call Me Mister (1946-1948). Her energetic dancing and acting often earned her second lead in musicals early in her career. However, her film career was ruined when her husband Larry Parks admitted to the House Un-American Activities Committee that he had been a Communist. Most of her roles after this were on TV, including recurring roles as Irene Lorenzo on All in the Family (1973-75), which earned her a Golden Globe in 1975, and Edna Babish on Laverne and Shirley (1976-1981). She was nominated for an Emmy for a guest star appearance as Molly Firth on Becker in 2003. Toned. Corners creased. Printed caption on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
