ELIZABETH TAYLOR, EDGAR BERGEN, and CHARLIE McCARTHY
Elizabeth Taylor, Edgar Bergen, and Charlie McCarthy sign a golden rod album leaf in black ink.
Signature: "Elizabeth/Taylor" and on verso "Edgar Bergen/and/Charlie", 5¾x3¾ album leaf. B/w photo affixed of respective signers. Already a striking beauty by age ten, violet-eyed, London-born child star ELIZABETH TAYLOR (1932-2011), who made her film debut in 1942, grew up to play sizzling adult roles on screen. Married to Nick Hilton, Michael Wilding, Mike Todd, Eddie Fisher, Richard Burton (twice), John Warner and Larry Fortensky, Taylor won Academy Awards for Best Actress for Butterfield 8 (1960) and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966). The first actress to earn $1 million for a motion picture (Cleopatra, 1963), Taylor was also nominated for Best Actress Oscars in 1957 (Raintree County), 1958 (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) and 1959 (Suddenly, Last Summer). Named a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II on December 31, 1999, Taylor was also a John F. Kennedy Center Honoree in 2002. Despite debilitating health problems, she is also known for her tireless efforts to raise funds for AIDS charities. Ventriloquist EDGAR BERGEN (1903-1978) and his dummy CHARLIE McCARTHY were first heard over Rudy Vallee's radio program on December 17, 1936 and were an immediate hit. Bergen was promptly signed, and Bergen and McCarthy starred on NBC and later on CBS from 1937-1956. Charlie McCarthy was a sarcastic boy who managed to get into trouble, which always worried Edgar Bergen. McCarthyisms included: "Ambition is just an excuse for those without the good sense to be lazy" and "Hard work never killed anyone, but why take the chance?" Bergen signed McCarthy's name. Irregular margins. Binding holes at left. Fine condition.
