CELESTE HOLM and ARMINA MARSHALL
Contract between The Theatre Guild and Celeste Holm for her personal services to act in a radio version of the play Blow Ye Winds
Contract signed: "Celeste Holm". 2 pages, front and verso, 8½x11. New York, New York, 1950 September 22. Also signed "Armina Marshall". Contract between The Theatre Guild and Holm for her personal services to act in a radio version of the play Blow Ye Winds, airing October 8, 1950 for $2000.00. 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. Armina Marshall, who first appeared on the Broadway stage in 1924, became a prominent playwright and producer. The Theatre Guild, which she and husband Lawrence Langer founded in 1919, still flourishes, having produced 228 Broadway plays as of 2002.Marshall and Langer received a Tony for the stage version of Sunrise at Campobello in 1958 and a special Tony (1961) for organizing the first repertory group to tour the world for the U.S. State Department, at President Kennedy's behest. Slightly nicked at upper edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
