Sale Price $378.00
He inscribes a movie still from Let's Be Happy (1957)
Photograph inscribed and signed: "Best wishes/Edward/Tony Martin". B/w, 10x8. Shown with Vera Ellen in Let's Be Happy (1957). Martin (1913-2012), was a popular crooner of the 1940s and 1950s whose deliberate delivery and romantic ballads were more in keeping with vintage movie musicals than the currents that would shape the pop music of the last half of the 20th century. He made his first hit record in 1938, Now It Can Be Told. After serving in the Navy in WWII, Martin made a brief but fairly successful stint on Mercury from 1946 to 1947 that helped get things going for him again, after which he moved to RCA and enjoyed many pop hits over the next decade. He also got a lot of work in radio and television, and performed with considerable success on the cabaret circuit with his wife, dancer-actress Cyd Charisse. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
