THE McGUIRE SISTERS: PHYLLIS McGUIRE
Phyllis McGuire of The McGuire Sisters sends a typed letter to Phyllis Diller.
Typed Letter Signed: "Phyllis McGuire", 1p, 6¼x9¼. No place, 2003 October 14. On her personal letterhead to comedian Phyllis Diller, Los Angeles. In full: "You will never know how much you personally mean to me and how much I admire your class, beauty and extraordinary talent. I've never known a lady that is so giving, so kind, inately bright, and educated. I have always been a believer that charity begins at home and from my heart this is a token of deep appreciation. When I called you and asked you to be my honored guest for this event, you said to me on the phone, (and I'll never forget this as long as I live), 'I'll do it, I'll do it?' Not only did your presence make this a success for our LVAM, but your artistry, your fame and your charm has made this an evening that many have said they will never forget. I just watched the event covered by Robin Leach on T.V. It's a wonderful spot, you look great, and I will send you a copy very soon, along with some other goodies. Love you! ". The McGuire Sisters were immensely popular in the pre-rock 1950s, regulars on the Arthur Godfrey TV and radio programs who scored top hits with "Sincerely" (1955) and "Sugartime" (1958). After many years of inactivity, the sisters reunited for the first of many Las Vegas show performances in 1985. The McGuire Sisters are enshrined in the National Broadcasters Hall of Fame and the Vocal Groups Hall of Fame. PHYLLIS McGUIRE pursued a solo career for a time. The group's Eisenhower-era wholesome image notwithstanding, Phyllis, was the girl friend of mob boss Sam Giancana in the 1960s. In October 2003, McGuire had opened her home for a dinner and silent auction to benefit the Las Vegas Art Museum, with Phyllis Diller as guest of honor. People paid up to $1,000 for the dinner alone. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
