IRVING BERLIN (1888-1989), born Israel Isidore Baline in Tumen, Siberia, Russia, was such a force in American music that in 1924, when Berlin was just 37, songwriter Jerome Kern gave this assessment: "Irving Berlin has no place in American music. He is American music." If the only song he ever wrote was "God Bless America", made famous by Kate Smith, Berlin would be an important part of American music. But Berlin wrote more than 900 songs, including the classics "A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody", "There's No Business Like Show Business", "Always", "Easter Parade" and "Blue Skies", 19 musicals, including Annie Get Your Gun and Call Me Madam, and the scores of 18 movies, including Holiday Inn, which featured his 1942 Academy Award-winning song, "White Christmas". YVONNE DE CARLO (1922-2007), born Margaret "Peggy" Yvonne Middleton in Vancouver, Canada, is best remembered for her role as Lily Munster on the TV sitcom, The Munsters. She was also seen in her role as the family's matriarch in the 1966 feature film, Munster, Go Home!, and in the TV reunion movies, The Munsters' Revenge (1981), Here Come the Munsters (1995) and The Munsters Scary Little Christmas (1996). De Carlo, who made her feature film debut in 1942, was usually cast in period films, Westerns and a few comedies. Her credits include This Gun for Hire (1942), Salome, Where She Danced (1945), Song of Scheherazade (1947), Black Bart (1948), The Ten Commandments (1956) and McClintock! (1963). She also starred opposite Clark Gable and Sidney Poitier in the civil war drama Band of Angels (1957, based on the novel by Robert Penn Warren). Lightly soiled. Mounting remnant at lower left blank corner on verso (no show through). Slightly irregular left edge from removal from bound book. Overall, fine condition.
