Photograph signed: "Dick Haymes", "Thank you from/UNICEF/Celeste Holm". B/w, 10x8. Captioned movie still from Carnival in Costa Rica (1947). DICK HAYMES (1918-1980), born in Argentina, was a very popular big band singer of the 1940s and solo pop vocalist through the mid- 1950s. He sang with the bands of Harry James, Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey, and was renowned for his mellow renditions of pop standards like "Come Rain or Come Shine" and "It Might as Well Be Spring." He appeared in a few films (State Fair, Four Jills and a Jeep, and the film shown here), and might have been remained at the top had it not been for personal problems: alcohol, women (six stormy marriages, including one to Rita Hayworth), and citizenship problems. (Columbia Pictures mogul Harry Cohn tried to get him deported.) In 1943, Rodgers and Hammerstein cast CELESTE HOLM (1917-2012) as soubrette Ado Annie in Oklahoma!; both the production itself and Annie's show-stopping song "I Cain't Say No" signaled her future stardom. She was cast by her studio, 20th Century-Fox, in the role of the love-starved fashion editor in the prestige feature Gentlemen's Agreement (1947), for which she won an Academy Award. The important role of Bette Davis' understanding friend in another Oscar-winner, All About Eve (1950), has immortalized Holm amongst the film cultists. Always choosy about her roles, she remained active in the 1980s and 1990s whenever a good part struck her fancy. Holm has long been active in support of the UN Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF). Lightly creased. Worn at corners and edges. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
