Contract Signed: "Gloria DeHaven" in ink. 2p, 8½x11. August 28, 1958. Gloria DeHaven and Fosters' Agency agree that they will represent her for a period of one year throughout Great Britain, Northern Ireland and Continental Europe. Also signed by a representative of Fosters' Agency. Gloria DeHaven(1925-2016) was a band vocalist in film musicals such as Best Foot Forward (1943) and Summer Holiday (1948). She gradually moved into acting, emerging as a star in Summer Stock (1950) and The Doctor and the Girl (1949). These films appeared set to rocket her to stardom: she could sing and she could act, making her a great fit for any role. However, she gradually turned to television in the 1950s, making guest appearances on many different shows. When the popularity of film musicals waned, DeHaven remained active as a nightclub and summer stock performer and made television appearances for decades, most prominently in Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman (1976-1977) and the short-lived Nakia (1974). She re-entered the feature film industry in Out to Sea (1997) nearly 50 years later, starring opposite Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. Lightly creased, not affecting signature. Two file holes at upper blank margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
