DEBBIE REYNOLDS, CO-SIGNED BY: JANET LEIGH, GLORIA DeHAVEN, JUNE ALLYSON The four talented women sign this invitation to a 1993 Hollywood Legends Reception Invitation Signed: "Debbie/Reynolds" in black ink, "June/Allyson" in blue ink, "Gloria/DeHaven" in blue ink and "Janet Leigh" in black ink. Two-toned (purple and white) and glossy silver, 4p, 6¾ x 5, one sheet folded, front and verso, printed on cardstock. Invitation to a "Hollywood Legends Reception" held on July 14, 1993. With facsimile signatures inside of eight actors and actresses, including DeHaven, Leigh and Allyson. Debbie Reynolds's (1932-2016) film career began at MGM after she won a beauty contest at age 16 impersonating Betty Hutton. Most of her film work has been in MGM musicals, as perky, wholesome young women. In 1952, Reynolds starred in what many consider to be Hollywood's greatest musical, Singin' in the Rain (1952). She continued to use her dancing skills with stage work. Nearly all the money she has made is spent toward her goal of creating a Hollywood museum. Her collection numbers more than 3000 costumes and 46,000 square-feet worth of props and equipment. The mother of actresses Kelly and Jamie Lee Curtis with third husband Tony Curtis (1951-1962), LEIGH (1927-2004), born Jeanette Helen Morrison in Merced, California, was one of Hollywood's biggest stars from the late 1940s into the 1960s. Best remembered as the Oscar-nominated murder victim in the shower in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960), she also starred in such films as Little Women (1949), Scaramouche (1952), My Sister Eileen (1955), Touch of Evil (1958), The Manchurian Candidate (1962) and Harper (1966). DEHAVEN(1925-2016), born in Los Angeles, California, was a band vocalist in many film musicals, such as Best Foot Forward (1943) and Summer Holiday (1948). In the 1950s, she was paired with such stars as William Powell and Red Skelton. When the popularity of the musicals waned, DeHaven remained active as a nightclub and summer stock performer and made TV guest appearances. She returned to film opposite Walter Matthau in Out To Sea (1997). Frequently portraying wholesome girls next door and perfect wives, ALLYSON (1917-2006, born Eleanor Geisman in the Bronx, New York) co-starred with James Stewart in films including The Stratton Story (1949) and The Glenn Miller Story (1954). She hosted her own dramatic anthology TV series from 1959-1961, and Allyson remained active in film character roles, TV guest appearances and commercials. Lightly toned and stained. Reynolds' signature has discolored cardstock, and discoloring touches Allyson's signature on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
