Photograph of The Odd Couple stars, signed in full and inscribed to Marilyn Horne, dated December 14, 1973

255 x 206 mm. Tony Randall as "Felix" and Jack Klugman as "Oscar" from their television series The Odd Couple (1970-75). Inscribed and signed in blue: "Jackie I'll never be able to thank you enough. I love you. Tony Randall" and in dark pink: "Jackie about whom I love everything even her voice! Love xxx Jack Klugman."

From the collection of the distinguished American mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne (b. 1934).

Marilyn Horne appeared in the episode "Vocal Girl Makes Good" (Season 4, Episode 17), which first aired January 25, 1974. She starred as a shy opera singer named Jackie Hartman, whom Felix wants to star in his club's staging of Bizet's Carmen; she is, however, completely infatuated with Oscar and will only sing in his presence.

"Horne had a voice of extraordinary range, rich and tangy in timbre, with a stentorian chest register and an exciting top... In concert she once achieved the feat of singing in a single programme Rossini arias and Brünnhilde’s Immolation Scene, proof of her exceptional versatility. Throughout her lengthy career she was an admired recitalist, singing lieder, mélodies, Spanish and American songs with equal aplomb." Alan Blyth in Grove Music Online.
