DOROTHY McGUIRE (1916-2001, born in Omaha, Nebraska) had over 50 TV shows and movies to her credit between 1943 and 1990. McGuire made her stage debut in Omaha in A Kiss for Cinderella at age 13, opposite fellow Omaha native Henry Fonda, before heading to Broadway in 1938. On Broadway, she started as an understudy and eventual replacement in the role of Emily Webb in Our Town, the first of eight Broadway performances. Her most successful Broadway performance was Claudia, a comedy that ran 722 performances between 1941 and 1943 and which launched her movie career. McGuire's first role was in the stage adaptation of Claudia. McGuire's roles fluctuated between comedies (Three Coins in the Fountain, 1954), character parts (Friendly Persuasion, 1956) and drama (Gentleman's Agreement, 1947, for which she received an Oscar nomination). Notable roles include Katie Nolan, the beleaguered wife in A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1945)and the Virgin Mary (at age 46!) in The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965). Her TV performances included Rich Man Poor Man (1976) and Little Women (1979). She starred in a Broadway revival of Night of the Iguana, opening in December 1976. TOMMY KIRK (1941-2021) was a young star for Disney, appearing in "The Hardy Boys" segment of the Mickey Mouse Club, in Old Yeller (1957) and Shaggy Dog (1959). Substance abuse problems undermined his career in the 1960s and earned the ire of co-stars Fred MacMurray and John Wayne, the latter firing him from the case of The Sons of Katie Elder. Thereafter, he was cast in beach party movies and B horror films. His drug problems behind him, Kirk starred in Billy Frankenstein (1999) and became a favorite at nostalgia conventions. Corners rounded and creased. Light surface creases. Ink notes on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
