HILDEGARDE The evening singer and performer who grew famous worldwide signed and wrote this note sending her condolences over the legal problems her friend was having Autograph Note Signed: "Hilde", 6¼x3½ card. No place, no date. To "Judi Bar". In full: "Here 'tis - I'm so sorry you are having legal problems - I promise lots of Prayers. Love". At left margin, the popular entertainer has signed: "Hildegarde". A religious woman, Hildegarde became a Third Order Carmelite nun. Hildegarde Loretta Sell (1906-2005) was popularly known by her last name only or simply as "The Incomparable Hildegarde". A classically trained pianist who played in vaudeville from 1926, she emerged as a popular singer in the 1930s and 1940s with hits that included "Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup" (written by her manager Anna Sosenko), "The Last Time I Saw Paris" and "I'll Be Seeing You". She also had a popular radio program, Hildegarde's Raleigh Room. The international stardom that Hildegarde achieved as a live cabaret singer is unparalleled. She was renowned around the world and, having never married, had many admirers. Some of her many showmanship innovations include wearing sleeves at every performance and going by only her first name. These unique calling cards, as well as her incredible voice and flirtatious manner, broke new ground on the evening club circuit. In 1961, she published her autobiography: Over 50…So What! Slightly soiled. Fine condition.
