She inscribes her signature on a show bill for her most famous performance, A Streetcar Named Desire
Inscribed show bill cover signed: "Hi Gene!/Lois Nettleton" 36 pages, 5½x9. Play bill for The Repertory Theatre of Lincoln Center/Vivian Beaumont's production of A Streetcar Named Desire. In this Tennessee Williams' play, set in the French Quarter of New Orleans during the restless years following WWII, fading Southern belle Blanche Dubois finds her romantic illusions brutally shattered. Stage, screen and television actress Lois Nettleton (1927-2008) made her Broadway debut in 1949. She was critically acclaimed as Blanche DuBois in a 1973 performance of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire and was nominated for the 1976 Tony Award as Best Actress for They Knew What They Wanted. Nettleton also appeared off-Broadway with her husband of seven years (1961-1967), disc jockey and writer Jean Shepherd, in his play, Look Charlie (1959). Nettleton had "met" Shepherd as the first caller on his radio talk show, and their frequent conversations were a popular staple of the program. She made her "official" film debut in Period of Adjustment (1962), but Nettleton previously played a bit part in A Face in the Crowd (1957). Although she appeared in a number of feature films, Nettleton is best known for her television work. Nettleton won two Emmy Awards for her work on the small screen, one for the daytime special, The American Woman: Profiles in Courage (1977), in which she portrayed Susan B. Anthony, and one for A Gun for Mandy (1983), an episode of the religious program, Insight. She's probably best known for her roles as Joanne St. John from 1989 to 1990 in the TV version of In the Heat of the Night and as Virginia Benson from 1996 to 1998 on General Hospital. Her roles also include roles in made-for-TV movies, miniseries, regular roles on such series as The Brighter Day (1954-1957), All That Glitters (1977), You Can't Take It With You (1987-1988) and guest starring roles on a long list of TV series from Man Against Crime (1953) to Crossing Jordan (2001). She also supplied the voice of Maleficent in Disney's TV series House of Mouse (2001-2002). Toned and lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
