First Edition. Signed and inscribed by the author, television game-show producer and presenter, Chuck Barris, to actress Lois Nettleton: ÒTo Lois, Hope you like it. Chuck Barris.Ó Near fine copy with a touch of edge wear in a very good dust jacket with some minor dust soiling to the spine. You and Me, Babe is said to have been inspired by Chuck BarrisÕs marriage to Lyn Levy, the niece of one of the founders of CBS, which led to her disinheritance from her family. Chuck Barris is the creative force behind such classic television game shows as The Dating Game, The Newlywed Game, and The Gong Show. In his 1984 Ôunauthorized autobiographyÕ Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Barris claimed to have been an assassin working for the CIA in the 60s and 70s, and in 2002, George Clooney directed the film based on the book, starring Sam Rockwell as Barris. Lois Nettleton (1927 - 2008) was a lovely, versatile, and gifted actress and is perhaps best known for her film work in the 1960s and 70s, and later enjoyed a long career as a character actress in television and in film. Miss Nettleton was crowned Miss Chicago in 1948 and went on from there to develop an acting career, first on stage at Chicago's Goodman Theatre and then in New York at the ActorÕs Studio, where she made her Broadway debut in the 1949 production "The Biggest Thief in Town" under the stage name Lydia Scott. In 1955 she was Barbara Bel Geddes's understudy in the role of Maggie in the original Broadway production of Tennessee Williams Pulitzer-Prize winning play "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," staged and directed by the great Elia Kazan, during which time she was able to appear on stage several times. She received the prestigious Clarence Derwent Award for her acting in the play "God and Kate Murphy." Some of her films include Period of Adjustment (1962), Mail Order Bride (1964), The Man in the Glass Booth (1975), and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982). Over the years she made many appearances on television in both dramatic and comedic roles, and won EmmyÕs for her work on a daytime special "The American Woman: Profiles in Courage" (1977), and for "A Gun for Mandy" (1983), an episode of a religious-themed series "Insight." Her appearance in the classic television series The Twilight Zone, in the episode "The Midnight Sun" is a must-see fan favorite. She was married for a time to the radio and television humorist and writer, Jean Shepherd, and also appeared with him in his off-Broadway play "Look Charlie" in 1959. She wowed critics and audiences with her performance of Blanche DuBois in a 1973 Broadway revival of Tennessee WilliamsÕ A Streetcar Named Desire and was nominated for a Tony Award for her work in the 1976 play They Knew What They Wanted by Sidney Howard. She last appeared in public at the 2007 Twilight Zone Convention in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 17345E
