Dancer and actress signs her and her husband's name on beautiful Christmas card, underneath a short note
Christmas/ Holiday card signed: "Joe & Ivy" in blue ink. 1 page, 7x4. In full: "As every year - We will miss your lovely gatherings at Christmas - Our love". Ivy Sawyer (1898-1999) was a cabaret and ballroom dancer, singer and stage actress; she began her career dancing with John Jarrot until she met and married fellow actor Joseph Santley, with who she would perform with for over twenty years. Their best known performances on Broadway werer in Betty (1916) and Oh, My Dear! (1918). After appearing in the Irving Berlin's famous Music Box Revues, the couple decided to tour major venues around the United States such as the National Theatre in Washington D.C. After their retirement form dancing, they moved to Los Angeles where her husband became a successful director of musical comedy films. Theatre World, founded in 1945 by Daniel Blum, is America's oldest annual record of Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theatre, referenced by industry professionals, historians, students and theatre fans worldwide. Until 1998, when a separate nonprofit corporation was established, Theatre World's editorial staff bestowed the prestigious Theatre World Awards for outstanding Broadway and Off-Broadway debuts. Screen World (from 1950) and Dance World (from 1966), administered from the same office, also furnished comprehensive information on those entertainment genres. John A. Willis (1916-2010), active in Theatre World from the beginning, became its chief editor in 1965, holding that position until 2008. Willis is regarded as one of the foremost theatre and film historians of the 20th century. While producing (and presenting) the annual Theatre World Awards, Willis also served on the nominating committee for the Tony Awards. Theatre World, which received its own Tony for Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Toned. Corners creased and rounded. Otherwise, fine condition.
