Original 9" x 12" 24pg. souvenir program for "The World Of Carl Sandburg"that Bette Davis and her then husband, Gary Merrill, toured America for about a year. This was more a less a dramatic reading of the poet Carl Sandburg's life and work and featured folk songs, anecdotes and a tribute to Lincoln. I'm assuming that this is from the original Los Angeles production because when it finally came to Broadway in 1960, Merrill was gone, replaced by Leif Ericson who is mainly known as being once married to Frances Farmer. The "play" lasted for only 29 performances. The bright red covers have a small soft corner crease to the bottom corner and minor light soiling. Insides are illustrated with many photos of Bette Davis along with material on Carl Sandburg. Scarce. Vg.
