Charlie Drake Autograph Page Mounted

£55.00

Charles Edward Springall (19 June 1925 – 23 December 2006), known professionally as Charlie Drake, was an English comedian, actor, writer and singer.   With his small stature (5′ 1″/155 cm 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.

Drake made his first appearance on stage at the age of eight, and after leaving school toured working men’s clubs. After serving in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War, Drake turned professional and made his television début in The Centre Show in 1953. He then joined his wartime comrade Jack Edwardes to form a double act, named ‘Mick and Montmorency’. In 1954 he appeared with Bob Monkhouse in the film, Fast and Loose.

Drake suffered a stroke in 1995 and retired, staying at Brinsworth House, a retirement home for actors and performers, run by the Entertainment Artistes’ Benevolent Fund, until his death on 23 December 2006, after suffering multiple strokes the previous night
