Celeste Holm collection at Doyle.
Posted by: portenopete 07:37 pm EDT 04/27/21

Just looking at some of the offerings on the Doyle Auction House from the Celeste Holm Estate and interested to read that she was being pursued to take over in two R&H productions both ANNIE GET YOUR GUN and SOUTH PACIFIC. I guess the third time was the charm since she did replace Gertrude Lawrence in THE KING AND I. Judging from what exists of her Ado Annie, I think both Annie Oakley and Nellie Forbush would have suited her perfectly. (She really did have range, that one: was anyone else equally suited to Annie Oakley and Mrs. Anna?)
