GLORIA DeHAVEN The actress whose career spanned over half a century signed this contract with Decca Records. Inc. Contract Signed: "Gloria DeHaven" in ink. 4p, 8½x13. November 1954. Gloria DeHaven and Decca Records, Inc. agree to allow Decca Records Inc. the right to utilize her performance of the selections titled: If You Were There and The Two of Us recorded on the soundtrack of the motion picture So This Is Paris for a royalty of 2 1/2% of suggested retail list price. Also signed by Decca's Director of Artists and Repertoire. 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. Stray pencil mark touches all of printed text on first page except for last nine lines. Two file and staple holes at upper blank margin. Paper missing at upper right corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
