BETTY GARRET (1919-2011) made her stage debut in Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre in 1938, in a production of Danton's Death, and debuted on Broadway in the 1942 musical revue Of V We Sing. Garrett broke onto the silver screen after MGM saw her performance in another Broadway revue, Call Me Mister (1946-1948). Her energetic dancing and acting often earned her second lead in musicals early in her career. However, her film career was ruined when her husband Larry Parks admitted to the House Un-American Activities Committee that he was a Communist. Most of her roles after this were on TV, including recurring roles as Irene Lorenzo on All in the Family (1973-75), which earned her a Golden Globe in 1975, and Edna Babish on Laverne and Shirley (1976-1981). She was nominated for an Emmy for a guest star appearance as Molly Firth on Becker in 2003. Canadian-born actor VICTOR JORY (1902-1982) was a U.S. Coast Guard boxing and wrestling champion. He played occasional leads, but more often character parts in films, often as a heavy. Key roles included A Midsummer Night's Dream (1935), Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1938), Man of Conquest (1940), The Miracle Worker (1962) and Papillon (1973). He played Lamont Cranston in a serialization of The Shadow (1940). EVA LA GALLIENNE (1899-1991) was an American actress as well as a stage director, producer and writer with 77 Broadway productions and 15 TV shows and movies to her credit. She was nominated for the 1980 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Ellen Burstyn's Grandma Pearl in Resurrection (1980) and for the 1981 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play for To Grandmother's House We Go (1981). ROBERT "BOB" ALLEN (1906-1998), played leading man roles in a few films of the mid 1930s, including Love Me Forever and Life of Lafayette (1936), earning an Oscar nomination in the title role in the latter. Then Columbia decided that Allen should replace Ken Maynard as a Western hero; six "Bob Allen, Ranger" movies followed. Allen, a polo player, fox hunter and military school cavalryman, was a good rider, but he couldn't sing or play the guitar. So he was replaced by Roy Rogers. Allen made later films, but focused more on Broadway, where he was featured in the debut of Auntie Mame (1956-1958). He was seen frequently on the TV playhouses of the 1950s, and made his last big screen appearance in Raiders of the Living Dead (1986). British actress BRENDA FORBES (1909-1996) was a distinguished performer on Broadway for over fifty years, she debuted on the stage in The Barretts of Wimpole Street (1931) and was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress for her role in The Loves of Cas McGuire (1966). Her other Broadway performances include Romeo and Juliet (1934-1935), One For the Money (1939), Ring Round the Moon (1950-1951), Quadrille (1954-1955), My Fair Lady (1976-1977) and Aren't We All (1985). She also appeared in films and television programs for over sixty years, some notable credits including Mrs. Miniver (1942), Mrs. Delafield Wants to Marry (1986) and Laura Lansing Slept Here (1988). Singer and actor RAY MIDDLETON (1907-1984) starred in Broadway musicals from the early 1930s. He played Washington Irving in Knickerbocker Holiday (1938-1939), Frank Butler in Annie Get Your Gun (opposite Ethel Merman, 1946-1949), and he was Ezio Pinza's replacement as Emile LeBecque in South Pacific. As a sergeant during World War II, he starred in the morale-boosting Winged Victory. He was the innkeeper for the full run of Man of La Mancha (1965-1971), except for a short absence for heart surgery! On July 3, 1940, Middleton became the first actor to portray Superman, featured on "Superman Day" at the New York World's Fair, an event broadcast on radio and featuring a reduced admission price for kids. He made his film debut in Gangs of Chicago (1940), and starred in the Stephen Foster biopic I Dream of Jeannie (1952), performing in blackface. In the 1970s he starred in a one-man touring show, America in Song and Dance, and was frequently seen in TV commercials. Lightly toned. Irregularly cut. Fine condition.
