Booth won a Tony Award for Best Actress in the 1950 Broadway play, and went on to star in the 1952 film (adapted by Ketti Frings) for which she also won an Oscar for Best Actress. Robert Anderson, who did the adaptation, is best known for his own Broadway plays including Tea and Sympathy (1953), You Know I Can't Hear You When the Water's Running (1967), and I Never Sang for My Father (1968). The Theatre Guild on the Air began as an hour long dramatic series on radio that was adapted for television from 1953 to 1963 and sponsored by the United States Steel Corporation. The program's content mixed adaptations of traditional plays and original scripts by writers such as Rod Serling. The series featured many notable actors including Martin Balsam, Tallulah Bankhead, James Dean, Keir Dullea, Andy Griffith, Rex Harrison, Celeste Holm, Jack Klugman, Peter Lorre, Walter Matthau, Paul Newman, George Peppard, Johnny Carson, and many more.

        Pursuit of Gentlemen [with unproduced typescript play]

      New York: Coward-McCann, Inc.. (1951). First. First edition. Illustrated by Jack Long. Near fine with slight soiling to boards and some edgewear in a very good dustwrapper with rubbing, chips and tears. Inscribed by the author. Laid in are eleven 8.5" x 11" photocopied pages of a typed treatment for staging the book as a play with hand-written corrections. All pages have been folded and are very good with shallow chips and tears.Kathryn Cochran Cravens, 1898--1991, a radio personality, actress and writer from Texas was the first female news commentator to be broadcast coast to coast. Pursuit of Gentlemen, her only novel, was published in 1951, the manuscript for which won first prize from the National League of American Penwomen in 1948. The novel is a fictionalized version of her adventures as a trailblazing woman with humble Texas beginnings finding her way through New York society.She started her career playing small parts for Fox Films in Hollywood. The following decade would include work in silent films and eventually radio, where she found her niche. By 1930 she was given her own news program in St. Louis, "News Through a Woman's Eyes." CBS eventually picked up the show and Cravens moved to New York. After the show she wrote columns for Cosmopolitan, The New York Times, and The Christian Science Monitor before focusing on the war effort. In 1945 she became the first woman wartime correspondent. She was later acknowledged for her efforts with a special citation presented by the United States Army.Although never performed, Cravens typed up staging directions for the first two acts of Pursuit of Gentlemen, which appears here. The draft includes notes in pen by the author on the content as well as duplications and "writer's copies." This would be her last published work as Cravens retired to her family home in Burkett, Texas in 1952 after making it to "Who's Who in America." .

        The Biggest Show of '51 - signed programme

      New York: , 1951. Quarto. Wire-stitched in the original pictorial wraps on coated paper. Profusely illustrated with performer portraits. Upper wrap panel of the wraps with a narrow sunned strip at the head, some pin-holes around the margins throughout, a little rubbed, light browning, but overall very good. Signed in ink at their portraits by Nat "King" Cole, Duke Ellington, and Sarah Vaughan. Billed as "the biggest Negro talent package ever assembled … with a huge weekly overhead … of $25,000", "The Biggest Show Of '51", kicked off on 21 September 1951 in Boston, and after an extensive and gruelling tour of the US and Canada, ended on 28 November with two dates in Ohio. The package was styled after vaudeville show, featuring seasoned performers including dancers Maria Bryant and Peg Leg Bates, and comedians Timmie Rogers - who was given his big break on the Nat Cole show - and Stump & Stumpie - the first three have also signed at their portraits, all of them backed by the Ellington Orchestra; but the real stars of the show were the Duke and two of the most popular singers on the planet, Sarah Vaughan and Nat Cole, both of whom fronted the Ellington band during the two hour concerts, with Cole also appearing at the piano with his trio. Leonard Feather, reviewing a sold out performance at Carnegie Hall for Downbeat magazine, observed that "the Ellington band currently boasts the most expensive vocal team in history: a girl singer named Vaughan and a boy singer named Cole … After their co-starring tour breaks up, maybe Duke could put them on the payroll. For a mere twelve grand a week he'd have himself a bargain". Wonderful memento of a remarkable collaboration.

      Chapel Hill 1951 - A small archive of material from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paul Green and his wife Elizabeth to Gregg Sinclair, President of the University of Hawaii, comprising three Typed Letters Signed and thirteen custom-printed Christmas cards, of which three are Inscribed with an additional sentiment. The letters, dated September 14, 1951 through December 22, 1952, detail Green's visit to Hawaii as part of his study of international drama, music, and dance. The holiday greetings, dating from 1957 through 1970, become increasingly more elaborate. Beginning in 1958 the Greens composed an original verse for the holidays which, for several years, they set to music. One early letter has some modest foxing else all items are fine in a custom cloth clamshell case. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [Radio Script]: Come Back, Little Sheba by William Inge Adapted for Radio

Stapled mimeographed leaves printed rectos only. 58pp. Some foxing and moderate wear on the first and last leaves, very good. An adaptation of the Broadway drama that featured Gary Cooper and Shirley Booth. The play displays extensive textual corrections in pencil by the director of the play, Homer Fickett. Booth won a Tony Award for Best Actress in the 1950 Broadway play, and went on to star in the 1952 film (adapted by Ketti Frings) for which she also won an Oscar for Best Actress. Robert Anderson, who did the adaptation, is best known for his own Broadway plays including Tea and Sympathy (1953), You Know I Can't Hear You When the Water's Running (1967), and I Never Sang for My Father (1968). The Theatre Guild on the Air began as an hour long dramatic series on radio that was adapted for television from 1953 to 1963 and sponsored by the United States Steel Corporation. The program's content mixed adaptations of traditional plays and original scripts by writers such as Rod Serling. The series featured many notable actors including Martin Balsam, Tallulah Bankhead, James Dean, Keir Dullea, Andy Griffith, Rex Harrison, Celeste Holm, Jack Klugman, Peter Lorre, Walter Matthau, Paul Newman, George Peppard, Johnny Carson, and many more.
