THE McGUIRE SISTERS: PHYLLIS McGUIRE
Phyllis McGuire sends a typed letter to Phyllis Diller asking when she is coming for a visit.
Typed Letter Signed: "Phyllis" in type, 1p, 8½x11. Las Vegas, Nevada, 1996 December 17. On her personal imprinted letterhead to comedienne and actress Phyllis Diller, Los Angeles, California. Begins: "Dear Phyllis". In full: "Saw you on the Rosie O'Donnal (sic) show, Monday, 12/16....Did you base your routine on this woman? When are you coming for another visit? I miss you and I love you! Love". Singer and actress PHYLLIS McGUIRE (born in 1931) was only four years old when she began singing in 1935 with her sisters, Christine (born in 1926) and Dorothy (born in 1928). By 1949, the McGuire sisters were performing at military bases and veterans' hospitals. In 1952, the sisters appeared on Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts, and the entertainer was so impressed with them that he signed them for his TV series, Arthur Godfrey and His Friends, where they appeared until 1957. The McGuire Sisters were also regulars on The Pat Boone-Chevy Showroom (1957), and they appeared on several other variety shows. After the McGuire Sisters, who performed for five U.S. Presidents (Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan and Bush) and Queen Elizabeth II, retired from show business, Phyllis pursued a solo career. She appeared in two feature films, Come Blow Your Horn (1963) and The White River Kid (1999), and was seen on the TV series, The Real Las Vegas (1996). Phyllis, who makes her home in Las Vegas, was the long-time mistress of mobster Salvatore "Sam" Giancana. Comedienne PHYLLIS DILLER (1917-2012), known for her outrageous appearance, zany outfits, distinctive laugh and a stand-up act that featured frequent references to her fictional husband, "Fang", and zingers about her sex appeal and numerous plastic surgeries, got her big break in March 1955 (at age 37), when she debuted at San Francisco's Purple Onion club. A subsequent appearance on The Tonight Show hosted by Jack Paar launched her national career, which got a big boost after Bob Hope saw Diller in a Washington, D.C. club. A favorite of the comedian, Diller would appear in three of Hope's films and 23 of his TV specials. Diller, who recorded her first comedy record album in 1959, took her groundbreaking "funny hausfrau" act to nightclubs and television variety shows and specials and she also appeared on the big screen. Her feature film credits include Splendor in the Grass (1961), The Fat Spy (1966), Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number! (1966), The Sunshine Boys (1975) and The Silence of the Hams (1994), and she provided the voice of the Queen in A Bug's Life (1998). Despite retiring from nightclub/stage tours in May 2002 at the age of 84, Diller continued to make films (Motorcross Kids, 2004; Forget About It, 2005) and occasionally appear on TV programs, including two episodes of 7th Heaven (2002, 2003) and a guest shot on The Wayne Brady Show (2004). Lightly creased with folds. Fine condition.
