Stage, screen and television actress CHASE (1903-1978, born in New York City), the daughter of the editor of "Vogue", made her Broadway debut in 1924 in The Red Falcon. She appeared in her first "talkie" feature film, Paris Bound, in 1929, the year she also made Why Leave Home?, The Careless Age, Red Hot Rhythm, Rich People and South Sea Rose, and would go on to appear in such features as The Florodora Girl (1930), The Animal Kingdom (1932), Now, Voyager (1942), Johnny Dark (1954), The Big Knife (1955) and Ocean's Eleven (1960). A fixture on early TV, Chase hosted the early talk show, Glamour-Go-Round (1950) and appeared as a panelist on Celebrity Time (1948), Masquerade Party (1952), It Should Happen to You (1954) and Keep Talking (1958-1959). Her TV guest appearances include The Chevrolet Tele-Theatre (1949), Kraft Television Theatre (1952, 1953, 1958), Playhouse 90 (1958), The Defenders (1961), Checkmate (1962) and The Patty Duke Show (1963). In addition to being known as an actress, Chase was also a widely read newspaper columnist, essayist and novelist. UNTERMEYER (1885-1977, born in New York City) was an American author, poet and editor. He was the author or editor of over 100 books, co-founded the poetry magazine The Seven Arts and helped to establish the reputations of poets like Amy Lowell and Robert Frost; many of the anthologies and poetry collections that he edited wound up in American schools as textbooks. Untermeyer also wrote over a thousand poems and published collections of his own poetry, including 1928's Burning Bush, and served as Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress from 1961 to 1963. Untermeyer reportedly held Marxist beliefs for part of his life and wrote for socialist magazines and was eventually blacklisted in the 1950s. Lightly toned and creased.
