Photograph signed: "Thank/you from/UNICEF/Celeste/Holm", "Kim Hunter", "Ellen Burstyn" and "Shirley Booth", Color 4x6. 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. Kim Hunter (1922-2002), born Janet Cole, made her film debut in 1943 in The Seventh Victim. Four years later, she created the role of Stella Kowalski in the Broadway production of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire. Hunter reprised the role in the 1951 film version, winning the Best Supporting Actress Oscar. Blacklisted during the McCarthy era, she was later the star witness in a trial that discredited the charges, paving the way for dozens of other performers to return to their careers. Later in her career, Hunter concentrated largely on stage and television work, but appeared in the Planet of the Apes films (1968, 1970, 1971) and in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (1997). Actress Ellen Burstyn, born Edna Rae Gilooly in 1932, enjoyed her greatest prominence during the '70s, a decade during which she was a virtual fixture of Academy Award voters' ballots. Burstyn won a Best Actress Oscar for Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974). She earned four other Oscar nominations forThe Last Picture Show (1971), The Exorcist (1973), Same Time Next Year (1978) - a role she reprised on Broadway - and Resurrection (1980). Burstyn's TV and stage performances have also earned several Emmy, Golden Globe and Tony nominations.ShirleyBooth (1909-1992)won an Oscar for Come Back Little Sheba (1953) and three Tonys for Goodbye, My Fancy (1949), Come Back Little Sheba (1950) and Time of the Cuckoo (1953). She did a number of other films, but is best remembered as the maid Hazel in the TV series Hazel (1961-1966), for which she won two Emmys. Fine condition.
