Gene Raymond(1908-1998) first appeared on stage at age 5, and on Broadway at age 12. Some of his best screen assignments include the anguished death row inmate in If I Had a Million (1932), the renegade groundskeeper in Zoo in Budapest (1933), the guy who won Dolores Del Rio in Flying Down to Rio (1933), the stuffy "other man" in Hitchcock's Mr. and Mrs. Smith (1941) and a glad-handing politico in The Best Man (1964). In 1948, Raymond produced, directed, co-wrote and starred in Million Dollar Weekend. A B-17 bomber pilot over Germany in World War II, he remained in the active reserves until 1968, long enough to fly airlifts in Vietnam, retire as a Colonel and win many decorations, including the Legion of Merit. He was married to actress Jeanette MacDonald from 1937 until her death in 1965. Toned. Corners rounded. Lightly creased at top margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
