In the year she signed this sheet, Langdon appeared in the made-for-TV movie, The Victim, and made three appearances on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In. Picon signed the sheet the year after she had appeared as the matchmaker in the film version of Fiddler on the Roof. SUE ANE LANGDON, on stage since childhood, moved from chorus lines at Radio City Music Hall and in Las Vegas to play briefly Alice Kramden in "Honeymooners" skits on Jackie Gleason's TV show in 1962. She appeared with Elvis Presley in two movies, Roustabout (1964) and Frankie and Johnny (1966). After a short period in which she flaunted her good looks, including posing for "Playboy" magazine, Langdon concentrated on comedy. She earned a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in the TV series Arnie (1970-1972). MOLLY PICON (1898-1992), who was sometimes called the "Jewish Charlie Chaplin" or the "Jewish Helen Hayes", was the pre-eminent actress in Yiddish theater in the U.S. On vaudeville since age five, she would star on stage, radio and television and in films for seven decades. Her reference to "Milk and Honey" refers to the Broadway play of the same name that resulted in her being nominated for a 1962 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical. The following year, she would play her first English-speaking role in Come Blow Your Horn. Picon, who has a Broadway theatre named in her honor, also wrote some 100 songs and skits for her shows. Ink notes (unknown hand) at lower margins of both sides. Binding holes at blank left margin. Fine condition.
