Photograph signed: "Thank you/from UNICEF/Celeste/Holm" and "David Wayne". B/w, 10x8. Movie still from the film, ©1955, Loew's Inc. The Broadway hit The Tender Trap is transformed into a beguiling Frank Sinatra film vehicle. He plays a Manhattan showbiz agent who enjoys the attentions of several willing young ladies. At an audition, Sinatra meets aspiring actress Debbie Reynolds with whom he falls in love. A complication involving his former amour Celeste Holm and his best friend David Wayne paves the way for the film's slightly offbeat denouement. In 1943, Rodgers and Hammerstein cast HOLM (1917-2012) as soubrette Ado Annie in Oklahoma!; both the production itself and Annie's show-stopping song "I Cain't Say No" affirmed Holm's future stardom. She was cast by her studio, 20th Century-Fox, in the role of the love-starved fashion editor in the prestige feature Gentlemen's Agreement (1947), for which she won an Academy Award. The important role of Bette Davis' understanding friend in another Oscar-winner, All About Eve (1950), has immortalized Holm amongst the film cultists. Wayne spent most of his screen time at 20th Century-Fox, where, among other things, he did two co-starring stints with Marilyn Monroe (1952's We're Not Married, 1953's How to Marry a Millionaire), played theatrical impresario Sol Hurok in Tonight We Sing (1953) and portrayed schizophrenic Joanne Woodward's long-suffering husband in Three Faces of Eve (1957). He was a regular in the TV weekly series Norby (1955), The Good Life (1973), Ellery Queen (1975, as Inspector Queen), Dallas (1978) and House Calls (1980). He retired in 1993 after the death of his wife of 51 years. Slightly creased and soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
