GWEN VERDON
She signs and initials a detailed agreement covering her appearance on TV's Perry Como show.
Document signed twice: "Gwen Verdon", 18 pages, 8½x11. New York, N.Y., 1961 May 22. Agreement between Verdon's production company and Roncom Productions, Inc. for her appearance on Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall, November 22, 1961. Signed on last page as Performer and on first page as representative of Verdon Enterprises, Inc. Also initialed on a rider stapled to front of document and at several amendments. Stage, screen and television actress Gwen Verdon (1925-2000) made her debut on Broadway in Cole Porter's Can-Can, winning the 1953 Theatre World Award and the 1954 Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical. She also won Tony Awards for Best Actress (Musical) for Damn Yankees (1956), New Girl in Town (1958) and Redhead (1959), and was nominated for Tonys in the same category for Sweet Charity (1976) and Chicago (1976). Sweet Charity, like many of her earlier Broadway triumphs, was choreographed by her longtime husband, Bob Fosse. The couple, who married in 1960, separated in 1971, but remained married until his death in 1987. Verdon's films include David and Bathsheba (1951), Dreamboat (1952), The Cotton Club (1984), Cocoon (1985 and its 1988 sequel) and Marvin's Room (1996), and the versatile performer made guest appearances on a long list of TV variety shows and series.

Staple holes at upper left. Lightly worn at edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
