The former is annotated by actress Margaret Klenck, who played the role of Lorna Moon in the production. Accompanying the second script are note cards with well wishes from cast members Allison Mackie, Scott Cohen, Gabriel Macht, and Gretchen Cleevely and musical coordinator Deborah Lapidus.
Included too is an inscribed copy of The Three Faces of Eve signed by authors Corbett H. Thigpen and Hervey M. Cleckley, with an “Ex-Libris J. & P. Newman” bookplate. Woodward starred in the 1957 motion picture of the same title for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Roll.
Glamorous Movie Stars of the Sixties, a collection of paper dolls published by Tom Tierney in 1999, features cut outs picturing Woodward in costume for “A New Kind of Love” (1963), “Rachel, Rachel” (1968), and “A Big Hand for a Little Lady” (1968). And a scrapbook of press clippings from the 1989 documentary, “American Masters - Broadway’s Dreamers: The Legacy of the Group Theatre,” further records details of this public television project narrated by Joanne Woodward.
