BETTY GARRETT
A letter from the actress thanking a friend for his Xerox copies of pictures of her late husband, Larry Parks, saying she keeps them with photos of her sons: "They are so like their father, it's spooky"
Typed letter signed: "Betty Garrett", in blue ink, 1 page, 8x10. April 5, 1990. New York City, New York. In full: "Dear Mr. Galente: Thank you so much for the Xeroxes of all the wonderful pictures of Larry. Fortunately for me, Larry was a great picture collector. He haunted the still labs at Columbia, and I think I have the picture of me from "ON THE TOWN". What has been fun for me is to cut out your Xerox copies and paste them around my mirror along with pictures of my sons. They are so like their father, it's spooky. Hope you do get to bring your family to "MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS." Looks like we'll be running for a while. We just made the record album which should come out in a month or two. Thank you again. Sincerely". 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 was 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. Normal mailing folds. Corners slightly worn. Light surface creases. Small dents on bottom edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
