Item details

Betty Grable is the older of the two advertisements, Copyright 1944. It is in very good condition and the two ads are not attached to the white background. They were both magazine advertisements. In 1943, Grable was the number one box office draw in the world and, in 1947, she was the highest-paid entertainer in the United States.

Two of her biggest film successes were the musical Mother Wore Tights (1947) and the comedy How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), one of her last films. Grable retired from screen acting in 1955 after she withdrew from her Fox contract. Betty Grable's ad measures 11-1/2" by 8-3/4"; she was, I believe, the most popular pin-up girl for the soldiers during WWII.

The Kirk Douglas copyright date is 1950 and the ad measures approximately 14-1/2" by 9-1/2". The Kirk Douglas advertisement is in good to very good condition. There is wear to bottom border and small tear else very good.

From Wikipedia: Kirk is No. 17 on the American Film Institute's list of the greatest male screen legends in American film history, making him the highest-ranked living person on the list. In 1996, he received the Academy Honorary Award "for 50 years as a creative and moral force in the motion picture community".

A social activist, Douglas played an instrumental role in ending the Hollywood blacklist in 1960 by openly crediting Dalton Trumbo as the writer of Spartacus' screenplay." These two actors are Hollywood Legends.
