John Kerr, who played the young boy who falls in love for Deborah’s character in Tea and Sympathy (both the film and the play) died on February 2nd due to a heart failure. I must admit there were many things about him that surprised me in this short obituary from …
Deborah participated in several radio shows in Hollywood. On December 17th 1950, she took part in Episode 7 of Tallulah Banhead’s weekly show as one of the cast members. She played Mary on this adaptation of the 1936 play “The Women” by Clare Boothe Luce.
Larisa kindly shared this article ages ago – and I forgot to post it. Shame on me. Anyway, enjoy this short piece like the interviewers seemed to enjoy being in Deborah’s company during the run of “Tea and Sympathy”
Peter Viertel and Deborah are remembered in Marbella and have two streets named after them. I don’t know about you, but this article made me go all teary-eyed when I first read it.
John Crosby reviews “The Day After the Fair” by Frank Harvey for “PLays and Players” magazine (Nov. 1972)
Translation of an interview for Spanish magazine ONDAS in February 1974. Deborah is a real Lady with a quite impertinent reporter who keeps reminding her of how old she is and how surprising he finds that she is still capable of performing. A real dumbass, if I may say so.
Cuckoo4kitties shares another piece. This time Deborah and Peter discuss Tenessee Williams, adapting plays for the screen and the roles she would have liked playing from Tenessee’s plays. Thank you Lisa!
