WESLEY ADDY and CELESTE HOLM
The prominent acting couple send Christmas letter to Broadway producer Charles Forsythe, discussing the upcoming season
Autograph letter signed: "Wes" in blue ink and "Celeste" in black ink. 1 page, 9x6 flat, written inside Christmas card. Addressed to Broadway stage producer Charles Forsythe. In full (in Addy's hand): "Dear Charles - We missed seeing Miss Campbell that afternoon and its good to have word that we were able to reach her with our messages. Thank you so much for making it possible. We played Lacmia a few weeks ago and heard that that theatre was not being released for next summer & hope there are not many more. We hope the Broadway renaissance will spread by next year! With greetings of the season and best wishes for the coming year". WESLEY ADDY (1913-1996) was featured on the daytime drama The Edge of Night in the 1950s. A generation later, he could be seen on TV in the Ryan's Hope and Loving. His character roles in films, beginning in the 1950s, included What Ever Happened to Baby Jane (1962), Network (1976) and The Verdict (1982). He was married to Celeste Holm from 1961 until his death. In 1943, Rodgers and Hammerstein cast CELESTE HOLM (1917-2012) as soubrette Ado Annie in Oklahoma!; both the production itself and Annie's show-stopping song "I Cain't Say No" affirmed Holm's future stardom. She was cast by her studio, 20th Century-Fox, in the role of the love-starved fashion editor in the prestige feature Gentlemen's Agreement (1947), for which she won an Academy Award. The important role of Bette Davis' understanding friend in another Oscar-winner, All About Eve (1950), has immortalized Holm amongst the film cultists. Always choosy about her roles, she remained active in the 1980s and 1990s whenever a good part struck her fancy. Toned. Corners rounded. Light surface creases. Stain from paper clip on verso. Slightly torn on front. Otherwise, fine condition.
