Best remembered as Felix Unger in the television series The Odd Couple (1970-1975), Tony Randall (1920-2004) was an accomplished radio and stage actor by the late 1940s. He also served in WWII as a member of the United States Army Signal Corps. In the 1950s, he turned towards television to continue his entertainment career, eventually starring in successful comedies like Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1957), and Pillow Talk (1959) after a slew of minor television roles. The Odd Couple was the culmination of his television career, leading to The Tony Randall Show (1976) and the Emmy-winning Dear Sydney (1981-1982). He continued acting into the 21st century, with his final role in the film It's About Time (2005). His game show appearances probably could have encompassed a career all on their own: he racked up dozens of appearances on shows like The (New) $25,000 Pyramid (1973-1981), Password All Stars (1963-1972), and What's My Line? (1956-1967). In 1991, Randall founded the National Actors Theatre, a company based in New York City that was active until his death in 2004. Debbie Reynolds's (1932-2016) film career began at MGM after she won a beauty contest at age 16 impersonating Betty Hutton. Most of her film work has been in MGM musicals, as perky, wholesome young women. In 1952, Reynolds starred in what many consider to be Hollywood's greatest musical, Singin' in the Rain (1952). She continued to use her dancing skills with stage work. Nearly all the money she has made is spent toward her goal of creating a Hollywood museum. Her collection numbers more than 3000 costumes and 46,000 square-feet worth of props and equipment. Faint pink stain (2x1-inches) at bottom center. Otherwise, fine condition.
