Bing Crosby is perhaps best remembered for his performance in the movie White Christmas (1954), and of the song of the same name. He won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in Going My Way (1944) and was nominated for its sequel, The Bells of St. Mary (1945). He made over 70 films and recorded more than 1,600 songs. Crosby also was influential in the radio industry, becoming the first performer to prerecord his programs.

Condition: The glue has bled through the page leaving light stains, otherwise good condition with a large signature.
