Eddie Albert (1906-2005) was an award-winning film and television actor who racked up over 200 screen credits during his career. In 1936, Albert wrote and starred in The Love Nest, which was an experimental broadcast from the The Rockefeller Center in New York City. This was the first television movie ever made! Previously, television productions were adaptations of stage plays. The Love Nest was still performed live, but it was specially made for the screen. It starred Albert, Hildegarde, The Ink Spots, and Ed Wynn. In 1942, Albert enlisted in the United States Navy to serve in WWII. He later earned a Bronze Star. His brief time overseas did not slow down his entertainment career, appearing in films throughout the 1940s. In 1952, he starred in the short-lived television series Leave it to Larry. He received critical acclaim for his performance as Irving Radovich in Roman Holiday a year later. He went on to star in the popular television show Green Acres as city slicker-turned-farmer Oliver Wendell Douglas for the show's entire run from 1965 to 1971. His final major television role was in Switch (1975-1978). Other memorable films he appeared in include Escape to Witch Mountain (1975), The Longest Yard (1974), The Longest Day (1962), and Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises (1957). He also starred in Broadway productions, appearing in ten from 1936 to 1984. Albert was nominated for two Academy Awards, two Golden Globes, and one BAFTA over the decades. Perhaps the greatest honor he received is a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, an award he received midway through his career in 1960. Julie Adams (1926-2019) is best known as the imperiled heroine of The Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954). Since the late 1950s, she has been primarily a TV actress, guest starring on such programs as Alfred Hitchcock Presents and, in the 1990s, many episodes of Murder, She Wrote. She also played Amanda Eaton in Yancy Derringer (1958-1959) and Jimmy Stewart's wife on The Jimmy Stewart Show (1971-1972). Anna Maria Alberghetti (born in 1936) made her film debut in The Medium in 1951 and would g on to appear in a number of films, including The Last Command (1955), Duel at Apache Wells (1957), and Cinderfella (1960). She made a few guest appearances on television shows as well, most notably Climax! (from 1956-1957) and Wagon Train (in 1959). As a singer, she appeared on many late night talk shows, making many appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show. After a decades-long hiatus from acting, she returned to films in 2001. She starred in Friends and Family and The Whole Shebang that year. In 1962, she earned a Tony Award for her Broadway performance in Carnival (1961). English actress Dawn Addams (1930-1985) starred opposite Peter Lawford in The Hour of 13 (1954) and opposite Charlie Chaplin in A King in New York (1957). She divided her later career between British television and B horror films. Addams had a supporting role in British comedy Father Dear Father from 1971 to 1973. A rising star in war and Western films who appeared in She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949), actor John Agar (1921-2002) was largely consigned to low budget science fiction movies after his divorce from Shirley Temple in 1949 (the 27-year-old actor had married 17-year-old Temple in 1945 after a whirlwind courtship). He later appeared in three Westerns with friend John Wayne (1969-1971) and was often sought for film and television character roles. He appeared in Sands of Iwo Jima (1949), Tarantula (1955), and Miracle Mile (1988). Mari Aldon (1925-2004) was a ballet dancer before appearing in 1946's The Locket. She appeared in dozens of movies and television over the course of her screen career from 1946 to 1968 and was a leading lady during the mid-1950s. Aldon starred in Distant Drums (1951) and Race for Life (1954). Her marriage to director and screenwriter Tay Garnett led her to transition away from a film career, but she continued to make numerous television guest star appearances. Louise Allbritton (1920-1979) was an actress who made her screen debut in Not a Ladies' Man (1942). Until 1949, she appeared in various low-budget comedy films, including Bowery to Broadway (1944), The Egg and I (1947), and San Diego I Love You (1945). After marrying CBS news correspondent Charles Collingwood in 1946, she slowly transitioned out of the acting business to spend time with him. From 1949 until the end of her career in 1964, she almost exclusively made small appearances on television shows such as such as Armchair Theatre (in 1959), Armstrong Circle Theatre (from 1950-1952), and The Web (1954). Her final screen appearance was in the independent film Felicia (1964), her first film in 15 years. Heavily toned. Significant wear along edges of page with tears.
