Photograph signed: "Betty Garret" and "Ann Miller" in blue ink. Color, 10x8. Photograph of promotional lobby card from film On the Town (1949). BETTY GARRETT (1919-2011) made her stage debut in Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre in 1938, in a production of Danton's Death, and debuted on Broadway in the 1942 musical revue Of V We Sing. Garrett broke onto the silver screen after MGM saw her performance in another Broadway revue, Call Me Mister (1946-1948). Her energetic dancing and acting often earned her second lead in musicals early in her career. However, her film career was ruined when her husband Larry Parks admitted to the House Un-American Activities Committee that he was a Communist. Most of her roles after this were on TV, including recurring roles as Irene Lorenzo on All in the Family (1973-75), which earned her a Golden Globe in 1975, and Edna Babish on Laverne and Shirley (1976-1981). She was nominated for an Emmy for a guest star appearance as Molly Firth on Becker in 2003. ANN MILLER (1923-2004) began her Hollywood career at age 11, and with her vibrant personality, great legs and her tap dancing, won a seven year contract with R.K.O. At the age of 18, she played Ginger Roger's dancing partner in Stage Door (1937). She danced with Fred Astaire in Easter Parade (1948) and Bob Fosse in Kiss Me Kate (1953). In the 1980s, she costarred on Broadway with Mickey Rooney in Sugar Babies, then toured nationally for a total of nine years. In Columbia's Hey Rookie (1944), Miller set a tap dance record of 550 taps-per-minute in her climactic musical number. Ink stamp on verso. Fine condition.
