B/w publicity photo of the King Sisters grouped together and in white blouses, signed with "Our very best wishes"
Inscribed photograph signed "Yvonne", "Donna", "Louise" and "Alyce". Also signed "To Clarissa/-Our very best wishes/-The 4 King Sisters". B/w, 8x10 overall, 7¼x8½ image, one surface. Photo by MCA. Captioned: "KING SISTERS/featured with/ALVINO REY and his ORCHESTRA". THE KING SISTERS consisted of ALYCE KING (1916-1996, born Alyce Driggs in Payson, Utah), DONNA KING (1918-2007, born Donna Loivia Driggs in Utah), LOUISE KING (1913-1997, born Luise Driggs in Payson, Utah) and YVONNE KING (1920-2009, born Cornelia Yvonne Driggs in Payson, Utah). They were one of the most popular vocal groups of the big band era. They got their start as the Driggs Sisters in 1931, broadcasting on Oakland, California's KLX radio (now KNEW), but changed their names and act to the more showbiz-friendly King Sisters on the advice of the station manager. The quartet sang with Horace Heidt in the late 1940s, Kay Kyser in the late 1950s and their own orchestra in the early 1940s and scored hits in Nighty Night, I Said No, The Hut Hut Song, I Understand, I'll Get By and In The Mood. They also appeared in a few movies during the 1940s and, after their popularity waned, launched a popular TV variety show The King Family Show (1965-1969). Lightly toned, soiled, creased and bowed. Low contrast on signatures by Donna, Alyce and unknown signer; signatures are still legible. Missing bottom right corner. Tack holes in top corners, bottom left corner and left edge. Tape residue at all corners. Otherwise in fine condition.
