Jane Withers (1926-2021) was starring at age four on her own radio program in Atlanta, doing imitations of celebrities. She began her film career with bit parts, eventually (at age eight) winning the plum role of the obnoxious brat who bedevils sweet little Shirley Temple in Bright Eyes. This role won Jane a contract at Fox Studios, and for the next seven years she starred in a series of comedies and musicals. Her later films included Giant (1956) and Captain Newman, M.D. Withers also voiced a number of animated TV characters and guest starred on several TV series. To TV viewers of the 1960s and 1970s, Withers will be forever associated with her long-running (and extremely lucrative) stint as Josephine the Plumber in a popular series of commercials for Comet cleanser. In 2004, Withers made headlines auctioning off her Hollywood-themed doll collection, including dolls given her by admiring fans, such as Princess Elizabeth, the future Queen Elizabeth II. Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. A few light surface marks, scattered spotting to finish. Ripples at bottom edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
