This show had an enduring popularity and West successfully revived it many times throughout the course of her career. This hit show's initial run is what garnered the attention of Hollywood , and it helped launch her film career. Accompanied by a COA from Beckett Authentic. The agreement measures 8 1/2 x 11 inches and presents with punch holes from filing and a little toning. Near Mint condition.
