Photograph signed: "Love always/Nell Carter". B/w, 8x9½. Nell Carter (1948-2003), who found success on the stage, on television, in nightclubs and in feature films, is perhaps best known for her role as sassy, matronly housekeeper Nell on the 1980s sitcom, Gimme a Break (1981-1987). Starting out as a nightclub/cabaret performer, Carter gained national recognition for her performance in the Broadway musical, Ain't Misbehavin', winning a Tony Award in 1978 -- and an Emmy in 1982, when the show was broadcast on television. Her other television work includes roles in Ryan's Hope and The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo (as police sergeant Hildy Jones, 1979-1981), guest appearances on The Tonight Show, television movies, a TV special, Never Too Old to Dream (1986), and a show-stopping appearance on the 65th Annual Academy Awards (1992), where she sang "Never Had a Friend Like Me" from the animated musical, Aladdin. Carter, who had made her film debut in the film adaptation of the hit musical, Hair, also appeared in such films as The Grass Harp (1995) and The Proprietor (1997). She was in rehearsals at a Long Beach, California theater for Raisin, a musical version of Raisin in the Sun, when she died suddenly on January 23, 2003 at the age of 54. Minor surface creases (not evident head on). Fine condition.
