Inscribed movie still from Hellza Poppin
Photograph inscribed and signed: "Bless you Flossie/Martha/Raye". B/w, 10x8. Captioned movie still from Hellza Poppin (1941). Singer, actress and comedienne Raye (1916-1994, born in Butte, Montana) made her Broadway debut in 1934 and her first film in 1936. She had her own TV show (1953-1954) and many guest appearances. A tireless performer for American troops in three wars, billing herself as "Colonel Maggie", she was honored with the Academy of Motion Pictures' Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award (1968) and the Presidential Medal of Freedom (1993). She was buried in the military cemetery at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Hellza Poppin featured Raye in the film version of the unconventional Oleson and Johnson Broadway hit of the same name. Lower left corner torn away. Edges and corners creased. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Ink stain at lower edge. Multiple unknown stains on verso.
