Both Lake and Bet have signed boldly on the cover of the program. Light toning and edge wear; overall fine. 6 x 9 inches (15.2 x 23 cm). Lake starred in film noir movies of the the 1940's, where she was known for her long blonde peek-a-boo hairstyle. By the late 1940's, her career had begun to decline, partly because of her alcoholism. By 1951 she had left Paramount Pictures, bankrupt and on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Her summer stock appearance in The Voice of the Turtle was her first stage role, but a career in theatre never took off; she disappeared further into obscurity in the 1950's.
