Sale Price $162.00
The Academy Award winner is shown from the chest up in this black and white photograph
Photograph inscribed and signed: "Thank you/Buddy/from UNICEF/Celeste/Holm". B/w, 8x10 overall, image 4½x9¼ (one surface). 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" affirmed Holm's 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. Ink note on verso shows through faintly at blank upper right corner. Fine condition.
