Goodman (1915-2008, born Dolores Goodman in Columbus, Ohio) was an American actress of the stage, TV and silver screen known for her persona as a ditzy, malapropism-dropping redhead. Goodman got her start in theatre. She made her Broadway debut in Viva O'Brien (1941) and went on to good reviews in Wonderful Town (1953-1954, 559 performances). Talk show host Jack Paar took a shine to her and, in 1957, made her a semi-regular on The Tonight Show. Paar dropped her by 1961, reportedly because she kept upstaging him, but she managed to keep her career going on Broadway, where she had a total of 13 performances, and on talk and game shows. Goodman's career enjoyed a renaissance in the 1970s with roles as Martha Shumway on Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman (1976) and as Blanche in the film adaptation of Grease (1978). She was a frequent guest star on TV after that, with recurring roles on Diff'rent Strokes (1981-1984) and voice work on the TV cartoon Alvin and the Chipmunks (1983-1988). Lightly creased and rippled. Signature is lightly smeared and spotted. Light spotting and impressions on image. Small scuff mark near lower right corner. Otherwise in fine condition.
