CARMEL MYERS (1899-1980, born in San Francisco, California) was an American actress with over 90 TV shows and movies to her credit, with most of these before 1934. Myers was once one of Hollywood's most enticing and alluring vamps, especially as Iras in Ben-Hur (1926), and starred opposed Douglas Fairbanks and Rudolph Valentino. She made the transition to talkies with character roles and even to television with a 15-minute interview show, The Carmel Myers Show (1951). JACQUELINE SUSANN (1918-1974) appeared in two of the films made from her novels, Valley of the Dolls and The Love Machine. Her other works include Once is Not Enough and Every Night, Josephine!, and her notes to a planned sequel to Valley of the Dolls were later adapted by writer Rae Lawrence and published as Shadow of the Dolls. TV producer and publicist IRVING MANSFIELD (1908-1988) was married for 35 years to author Jacqueline Susann, and spent much of his career publicizing her novels and producing the film versions. The marriage worked despite Susann's many infidelities; Mansfield was adept at generating good publicity for her and her books. Susann died in 1974; Irving co-authored a memoir, Life with Jackie, in 1983. Mansfield didn't rely entirely on his wife for his success. He produced several other TV shows for CBS beginning in the late 1940s, including Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts, and the Morey Amsterdam and Frank Sinatra shows. ALFRED W. SCHWALBERG (d. 1974) was married to Carmel Myers from 1951 until his death in 1974. He worked in several different positions within Paramount Studios, often within their sales department. He also worked with several other studios during his career, consistently being named as General Sales Manager. Heavily toned. Small ink stain to left of Mansfield signature. Ink note (unknown hand) on top left corner of front. Slight surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
