Autograph Note on Picture Postcard signed twice: "Clarice Mayne", and on verso: "Sorry for delay./C. M." B/w, 5½x3½. Clarice Mayne (1886-1966) starred in English music halls and variety theatre, often billed as "Clarice Mayne and That" (Mayne singing as "This", her husband James W. Tate playing the piano as "That". Until Tate's death in 1922, he composed most of her songs, including her hits "Broken Doll" and "I Was a Good Little Girl, Till I Met You". From World War I through the 1920s, she played principal girl or principal boy in many popular pantomimes, including Cinderella and Puss in Boots. ("Principal boy" roles were considered sexier, since they allowed actresses to eschew the modest female dresses of the era.) Mayne appeared in a few films, including the silent Nursie! Nursie! (1916), and Educated Evans (1936). Corners lightly worn. Surface creases. Lightly soiled on front, soiled on back. Otherwise, fine condition.
