Signed self-caricature of Tony Award-winning actress Hagen, signed on verso "Sincerest Wishes" by opera soprano Jepson.
Self-caricature signed: "Uta Hagen", and signed on verso "Sincerest/Wishes/Helen Jepson". 5¼x7¼. HAGEN (1919-2004, born in Göttingen, Germany) was a Tony Award-winning American actress. Hagen is primarily known as a stage actress. She had 20 Broadway appearances between 1938 and 1987 - most of them before 1955 - and has garnered two Tony Awards for Best Actress for her roles in The Country Girl (1950-1951) and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1963-1964). She also premiered on TV in 1945, but the Hollywood blacklist delayed her film debut until 1972's The Others. Her primary impact on Hollywood has been as an acting teacher. Hagen taught acting to, among others, Matthew Broderick, Jason Robards, Sigourney Weaver, Whoopi Goldberg, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Jack Lemmon. JEPSON (1904-1997, born in Titusville, Pennsylvania) was beloved by Americans as a native-born operatic soprano on stages dominated by foreign stars. Jepson, also a popular radio voice with the Rudy Vallée and Paul Whiteman bands, made her Metropolitan Opera debut in 1935. She was the first to record (with Lawrence Tibbett) the music from Porgy and Bess, and she was featured in the 1938 film, Goldwyn Follies. After a throat ailment forced her retirement in 1947, she was a successful teacher, active in charitable causes. Lightly toned. Left edge has been torn neatly from album or notebook. Edges are lightly scalloped. Otherwise, fine condition.
