Sale Price $180.00
Very unusual image of the pop singer, shown in evening gown and long gloves
Photograph inscribed and signed: "Ellie,/My best wishes/to you always/Pet Clark". B/w, 8x10. English vocalist Petula "Pet" Clark (b. 1932) was a child radio and film star during World War II, billed as "Britain's Shirley Temple" and entertaining troops with fellow child actress Julie Andrews. She had some minor hit records in the 1950s, and appeared in several films, working with Anthony Newley in Vice Versa and with Alec Guinness in The Card. Then, in the 1960s, she became a major international star, starting with her hit single "Downtown" (1965), the first of fifteen consecutive Top 40 hits in the USA. She also revitalized her film career, starring opposite Fred Astaire in Finian's Rainbow and Peter O'Toole in Goodbye Mr. Chips. Clark continues to perform in the new millennium, popular in nightclubs, music festivals, and in her own one-woman show. Her New York show in 2012, which included a popular parody of her hit "Downtown," was extended due to heavy ticket demand. Lightly worn. Lightly creased. Lightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
