CARMEN CAVALLARO (1912-1989) was a pianist, bandleader and sometimes composer known as "The Poet of the Piano", was well known for taking classical standards and arranging them as pop tunes. Cavallaro, who had his biggest hit in 1945 with "Chopin's Polonaise", began his career with a dance band in St. Louis and later toured hotels and nightclubs across the U.S. Cavallaro hosted the radio program, The Schaeffer Parade, and appeared in several film musicals as himself: Hollywood Canteen (1944), Diamond Horseshoe and Out of This World (both 1945). In 1956, he provided the piano soundtrack for The Eddy Duchin Story. Actress/screenwriter JEAN HOWELL (1927-1996) appeared in several films, including The Fast and the Furious (1954), Crime of Passion (1957) and Lies (1983), and on a number of television series, from The Adventures of Kit Carson in 1951 to Our House in 1986. In 1953, the year she signed this note, Howell guest starred on an episode of You Are There. MARY ROSE BRUCE was a singer who released the singles, "Friends and Neighbors" and "Ain't Heard Nothin' Yet" in July of 1953.
