Black and white publicity photograph of composer Richard Adler
Photograph signed: "with best/wishes -/Sincerely,/Richard/Adler/11-7-91". B/w, 8x10. Composer and lyricist Richard Adler (1921-2012), the son of composer and pianist Clarence Adler, won Tony Awards in 1955 for The Pajama Game and in 1956 for Damn Yankees!, which were honored with Tonys for Best Musical, and he was nominated for a Tony as Best Composer for Kwamina in 1962. Adler, who also nominated for the Laurence Olivier Theatre Award in 1998 for Damn Yankees!, began his career as a jingle writer before teaming up with Jerry Ross, with whom he wrote the song, "Rags to Riches", as well as the Tony Award-winning musicals. His hit songs include "You Gotta Have Heart", which was the title of his 1990 autobiography, "Hey There (You With the Stars in Your Eyes)", "Hernando's Hideaway", "Whatever Lola Wants" and "Everybody Loves a Lover", which have sold millions of copies worldwide and earned him an induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame (1984). Adler, who has also written four Pulitzer Prize-nominated symphonic works, ballets, TV musicals and award-winning commercials, also staged a number of celebrity events during the administrations of Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, including Marilyn Monroe's famed singing of "Happy Birthday" to JFK. The father of Christopher Adler (1954-1984), who also wrote for Broadway, Adler was married to actress Sally Ann Howes from 1958-1966. Slightly creased at blank margins and corners, light black mark at lower right corner. Minor surface creases (most not evident head on). Name written (unknown hand) on verso (minor show through at upper right background above writing). Fine condition.
