Possessing one of the richest, most powerful voices in the history of theater, ETHEL MERMAN (1908-1984), the "First Lady" of American musical comedy, strutted her way across the stage during five decades of show-business success, beginning with her breakout role in 1930's Girl Crazy and continuing to put on memorable performances in Anything Goes in 1934, Annie Get Your Gun in 1946, and Gypsy in 1959. "I Got Rhythm" from Girl Crazy and "There's No Business Like Show Business" from Annie Get Your Gun became her trademark songs. Welsh actor RAY MILLAND (1907-1986) spent the 1930s and early 1940s playing light romantic leads in such films as Next Time We Love (1936) and Three Smart Girls (1936). In Easy Living (1937) he put forward an especially charming performance opposite Jean Arthur. He also starred as the major in Billy Wilder's The Major and the Minor (1942) opposite Ginger Rogers. Milland won an Oscar for his intense and realistic portrait of an alcoholic in The Lost Weekend (1945). RICARDO MONTALBAN (1920-2009), born Ricardo Gonzalo Pedro Montalban y Merino, is perhaps best known for his role as the suave, mysterious Mr. Roarke on TV's Fantasy Island (1978-1984). Star Trek fans might remember him for his role in the classic series reprised in Star Trek II: the Wrath of Khan. In many of his other roles, Montalban played a romantic lead and "Latin lover", mostly in films throughout the 1950s. In 1978, he won an Emmy for his portrayal of a Sioux chief in How The West Was Won (1976). GARY MERRILL (1915-1990) starred in dramatic action films of the 1950s and early 1960s. A few of his film highlights include Twelve O'Clock High (1950) and The Human Jungle (1954). He was married to actress Bette Davis (1950-1960), appearing with her in 3 films, including All About Eve (1950). Moreover, he was a frequent TV guest star. Merrill was politically active, participating in the Selma-Montgomery civil rights march of 1965 and switching parties to protest President Johnson's policies in Vietnam. ANN MILLER (1923-2004) began her Hollywood career at age 11. Her vibrant personality, great legs, and her tap dancing skills helped her land a seven-year contract with R.K.O. At the age of 18, she played Ginger Roger's dancing partner in Stage Door (1937). She went on to dance with Fred Astaire in Easter Parade (1948) and Bob Fosse in Kiss Me Kate (1953). In the 1980s, she co-starred on Broadway with Mickey Rooney in Sugar Babies, and then toured nationally for a total of nine years. In Columbia's Hey Rookie (1944), Miller set a tap dance record of 550 taps-per-minute in her climactic musical number. Heavily toned, especially at edges. Ink note by Marilyn Monroe's picture. Lower right-hand corner creased and oddly rounded. Otherwise, fine condition.
