Marshall signs on behalf of The Theatre Guild, Inc. GERTRUDE BERG (1899-1966, born Gertrude Edelstein in New York City) was a Tony Award-winning American actress and producer. A radio favorite since 1929, her "Goldberg Family" made its film debut in 1950's The Goldbergs. In the film, she recreated her radio and television role (debuted in 1949) of Molly Goldberg, the firm but gentle matriarch of a Jewish family living in The Bronx. Berg also appeared on Broadway four times and won a Tony Award for her performance as Mrs. Jacoby in A Majority of One (1959-1960).

The Theatre Guild, which she and husband Lawrence Langer founded in 1919, still flourishes, having produced 228 Broadway plays as of 2002. Marshall and Langer received a Tony Award for the stage version of Sunrise at Campobello in 1958 and a special Tony (1961) for organizing the first repertory group to tour the world for the U.S. State Department (at the behest of President John F. Kennedy). Lightly creased at corners. Fine condition.
