Faye was a singer with Rudy Vallée and His Connecticut Yankees on the radio show The Fleischmann Hour from 1932 to 1934. From the mid-1920s to the mid-1950s, VALLEÉ (1901-1986, born Hubert Prior Vallée in Island Pond, Vermont) enjoyed a successful career on radio, in movies, in Broadway musicals and with a solo nightclub act. His films include The Palm Beach Story (1942), I Remember Mama (1948), The Helen Morgan Story (1957), The Night They Raided Minsky's (1968), Won Ton Ton, the Dog Who Saved Hollywood (1976) and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (1967), in which he reprised his role from the successful 1961 Broadway musical. The first singer to be called a "crooner", Vallée was known for carrying a small megaphone and for his catch phrase "Heigh-Ho, Everyone", which he first used when appearing at New York's Heigh-Ho Club. FAYE (1915-1998, born Alice Jeanne Leppert in New York City) was a chorus girl who rose to movie stardom in such films as In Old Chicago (1938), Rose of Washington Square (1939) and Tin Pan Alley (1940). She also co-starred with husband Phil Harris in a popular radio comedy series. Semi-retired thereafter, Faye remained popular on TV and in nightclub appearances. Lightly toned and creased. Faye's pen skiped while signing endorsement. Normal bank stamps and cancellation holes, which touch signature and endorsement. Folded once horizontally and thrice vertically. Otherwise in fine condition.
