Falkenburg is pictured with her husband, Tex McCrary, and Margaret Truman, the daughter of President Harry Truman, who had a brief career as a soprano. Jinx Falkenburg(1919-2003), born Eugenia Lincoln Falkenburg, an actress, glamour girl and radio and television star, is credited, along with her husband, Tex McCrary, with helping to establish the talk show genre. Early in her career, Falkenburg appeared in several films, including Nothing Sacred (1937), Song of the Buckaroo (1939), Sweetheart of the Fleet (1942) and The Gay Senorita and Tahiti Nights (both 1945). In 1945, she married writer/photographer McCrary, with whom she hosted two radio talk shows, Hi Jinx and Meet Ted and Jinx, and several television shows, including At Home, an NBC show on which the couple interviewed guests in their home, and The Swift Home Service Club, which offered household hints and interviews. In the 1950s, the couple broadcast interviews with celebrities from the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in Manhattan. The couple, who separated in the 1980s, also helped persuade Dwight D. Eisenhower to run for President (and were fundraisers for the Republican Party) and wrote a column for "The New York Herald Tribune". Lightly creased at upper corners. Lightly soiled at blank margins. Mounting stains on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
