Magazine Cover signed: "Rock Hudson" and "Carol Burnett". Color, 8x10¾. "People Weekly", July 15, 1974 issue, featuring the two stars from the touring company of the musical. Cover story: "Carol Burnett & Rock Hudson/They're saying 'I Do! I Do!' all summer long". This story was about Hudson and Burnett's production of the two-act play I Do! I Do!, which they opened in Los Angeles in 1973. I Do! I Do! was Hudson's first stage production. Burnett, on the other hand, became a star during the 1959 off-Broadway production of "Once Upon a Mattress," which later moved to Broadway. Hudson (1925-1985), was born Roy Scherer but adopted the last name Fitzgerald when his mother remarried in the 1930s. He was nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award for Giant in 1956. Twice voted Hollywood's top box-office draw and a favorite of fan magazines, Hudson proved he had more than good looks, turning in solid performances in such films as Magnificent Obsession (1954), Written on the Wind (1956), Battle Hymn (1956), A Farewell to Arms (1957), This Earth is Mine (1959), A Gathering of Eagles (1963), Ice Station Zebra (1968) and Darling Lili (1970).He is also known for his pairings with Doris Day in a number of light-hearted romantic comedies, including Pillow Talk (1959) and Send Me No Flowers (1964). In 1971, Hudson finally moved to the small screen, starring in McMillan and Wife (1971-1976), appearing on Dynasty (1981) and making a number of made-for-TV films, including a role in the 1980 TV adaptation of Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles. Diagnosed with AIDS in the early 1980s, he was the first major public figure to bring the deadly disease to world attention. A versatile comedienne and star of stage, screen and television, Burnett (born in 1935) is best known for her long-running (1967-1978) CBS program, The Carol Burnett Show, which won numerous Emmys for both the program and its individual stars. With a first-rate supporting cast that included Tim Conway, Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner, The Carol Burnett Show enjoyed high ratings and resulted in a spin-off, Mama's Family. Burnett, who had begun her career in nightclubs, became frequent guest on the variety shows of Steve Allen, Ed Sullivan and Jack Parr before achieving stardom in the 1959 off-Broadway musical, Once Upon a Mattress, which led to a three-year stint on The Garry Moore Show, for which she received her first Emmy (1962). The following year, she would receive another Emmy for her 1962 appearance with Julie Andrews at Carnegie Hall. The gifted star also starred in feature films, including Pete 'n' Tillie (1972), for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress, and A Wedding (1978), which resulted in a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress, and Burnett also appeared on Mad About You, as Helen Hunt's mother, a role for which she won an Emmy in 1997 and was nominated for the same award in 1988. Lightly creased at left margin. Fine condition.
