Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Saul/My best wishes/always/Kathryn Grayson". B/w, 8x10. Double weight MGM publicity photo. Discovered by M-G-M while a teenaged vocalist on Eddie Cantor's radio program, Kathryn Grayson made her first major film appearance in Andy Hardy's Private Secretary (1940), in which she sang "Lucia" and "Voices of Spring". Her first leading role came two years later, when she starred as the title character in M-G-M's Rio Rita. Grayson, who appeared in such films as Anchors Aweigh (1943), The Kissing Bandit (1948) and The Toast of New Orleans (1950), gave her finest performances in Showboat (1951) and Kiss Me Kate (1953). In the latter two films, she was teamed with baritone Howard Keel, who would later become her singing partner in nightclubs and in summer stock. Although Grayson made her last film in 1956 (The Vagabond King), she returned to the small screen in 1980, appearing on Murder, She Wrote.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. Paperclip impression to top edge. Two fingerprints at background. Otherwise, fine condition.
