Dale Evans (1912-2001), born Frances Octavia Smith, who would become known as the "Queen of the West", started her career as a singer on radio and in nightclubs. After moving to Hollywood, she found few roles at the major studios, but became a Western star with Republic Studios, often cast with singing cowboy Roy Rogers (1911-1998), born Leonard Slye. Rogers and Evans, who co-starred in such films as The Cowboy and the Senorita (1944), The Yellow Rose of Texas (1944), Don't Fence Me In (1945), My Pal Trigger (1946) and Apache Rose (1947) were married in 1947, the year after the death of Rogers' first wife and the end of Evans' marriage. The couple starred on television on The Roy Rogers Show (1951-1957) and The Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Show (1962-1963), which closed with theirtheme song, "Happy Trails to You", written by Evans. They were a devoted couple with many children (many of whom they adopted) and grandchildren. Evans, who also authored several inspirational books, later hosted a religious program. Slightly creased. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Fine condition.
