A handwritten letter, in fountain pen, dated March 1960, by Fenella Fielding - "England's first lady of the double entendre" - the English actress who was popular in the 1950s and 1960s. In it, she thanks a fan for her letter and sends her a photograph. Known for her seductive image and distinctively husky voice, Fielding began her acting career in 1954, concentrating on stage theatrical productions. Her performance in Sandy Wilson's musical version of Valmouth made her a star in the late 1950s. By 1959 she was appearing with Kenneth Williams in the comedy revue Pieces of Eight, written by Harold Pinter and Peter Cook. She appeared in two of the Carry On films and three of the Doctor films (e.g. Doctor in Clover), and interspersed these with performances in plays by Ibsen, Shakespeare and Henry James. She also starred as a guest on The Morecambe and Wise Show four times between 1969 and 1972.
