Album leaf signed on one side by Truman and on the other by Hayworth, framed in the Gallery of History style to 23x18.
Inscribed signature: "To Vivian/Harry Truman" and, on verso, "Rita Hayworth", 4½x2¾. Truman's younger brother, who was named John Vivian Truman (1886-1965), was usually called Vivian. HARRY S TRUMAN (1884-1972), the nation's 33rd President (1945-1953), had previously served as U.S. Senator from Missouri, his home state, from 1935-1945. Truman had distinguished himself during his second term with his chairmanship of a committee investigating war profiteering. At the Democratic National Convention in 1944, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt selected Truman as his running mate in his successful bid for a fourth term. Truman, who succeeded to the Presidency upon FDR's death in April 1945, brought about a swift end to WWII, increased the minimum wage from 40 to 75 cents an hour and fought the Cold War with his Truman Doctrine (1947), a policy to aid Greece and Turkey in resisting Communist aggression. In his second term, Truman extended Social Security benefits to include approximately 10 million additional people and ordered U.S. forces into action when North Korean troops invaded American-supported South Korea (1950). RITA HAYWORTH (1918-1987) earned the title of "Hollywood's Love Goddess" for her appearance in the 1946 film, Gilda. After making her screen debut in 1935, she was cast in her first prominent role in 1939's Only Angels Have Wings. Two films, You'll Never Get Rich (1941) and You Were Never Lovelier (1942), established her as a dancing star of 1940s musicals and made her a popular pin-up with soldiers during WWII. Her other film credits include You Were Never Lovelier (1942), The Lady from Shanghai (1948) and Pal Joey (1957). Show through of writing at Truman's signature. Tape stain on front shows through on verso, touching the "a" in Rita and nicking the "H" of Hayworth. Slightly soiled at lower margin. Overall, fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 23x18¼.
