Produced by Paula Stone and Mike Sloane (wife and husband), the play portrays the story of a struggling actor and his faithful wife who attempt to pull themselves together for a make-it-or-break-it role in a new Broadway show. Perhaps best known as Jim Anderson on Father Knows Best (television, 1954-1960; radio 1949-1954) and the title practitioner on television's Marcus Welby, M.D. (1969-1976), ROBERT YOUNG (1907-1998) also appeared in over 100 films. In some screen roles, such as the cold-blooded spy in Hitchcock's Secret Agent (1936) and the no-good philanderer in They Won't Believe Me (1947), Young showed an acting range far wider than his likeable and wholesome TV characters. NANCY KELLY (1921-1995)won the 1955 Tony Award as Best Actress (Dramatic) for The Bad Seed, for which she received a Best Actress Academy Award nomination in 1957 for reprising her role of Christine Penmark in the 1956 film version. In 1957, Kelly was also nominated for an Emmy Award for Best Single Performance by an Actress for "The Pilot", an episode of the acclaimed anthology series, Studio One. Kelly, who made her film debut in 1926 (The Untamed Lady), would go on to appear in feature films through 1956 before concentrating primarily on television roles. Her film credits include The Great Gatsby (1926), Jesse James (1939), Stanley and Livingstone (1939), Tarzan's Desert Mystery (1943), Double Exposure (1944) and Crowded Paradise (1956). After making her television debut in an episode of The Silver Theater (1950), Kelly was seen in a number of early anthology series, and she made guest appearances on several series, including Thriller (1962), The Alfred Hitchcock Hour (1963), Medical Center (1974) and Bronk (1975), and appeared in two made-for-TV movies. Kelly was married to her first husband, actor Edmond O'Brien, from 1941-1942. She then married Fred Jackman, Jr. (1946-1950) and Warren Caro (1955-1968), dying the day after Caro. Character actorNORMAN "TAD" STURGIS(1922-1998) made appearances on many of the most popular TV series of the late 1950s, including Highway Patrol, Gunsmoke, Bat Masterson and The Twilight Zone. The letter's recipient, Charles Forsythe was an off-Broadway and regional theatre director and producer. DANE CLARK (1915-1998, born Bernard Zanville) usually played a tough guy, often one from his native Brooklyn, in war and western movies of the 1940s and 1950s. His most highly regarded films included Moonrise (1948) and Go, Man, Go (1954). He starred in the TV series Wire Service (1956) and Bold Venture (1959), making dozens of guest appearances on such programs as Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Twilight Zone and The Untouchables. The show bill is also signed by actors and actresses Richard H. Farmer (1915-1983), Maggie Magennis, Faye Blackburn, Roger Cole and stage manager Tony Albert. Toned. Corners lightly worn and creased.
