• Charlie Drake

A page from an autograph album signed with a biro by Charlie Drake (1925-2006), the English comedian, actor, writer and singer.  With his small stature (5' 1" tall), curly red hair and liking for slapstick he was a popular comedian with children in his early years, becoming nationally-known for his "Hello, my darlings" catchphrase. The catchphrase came about because, being so short, his eyes were usually directly level with a woman's breasts. Because of this, and his preference for working with large breasted women, the catchphrase was born. He died from complications from a stroke aged 81.
