ANS – Autograph Note Signed – Album leaf upon which she has penned, in green fountain pen ink: Most sincere wishes, Adelaide Hall, Queen Fitema in “The Sun Never Sets”; Durury Lane, London. So successful was Hall in this lavish 1938 production that it launched her career overnight, resulting in a long-term contract with the BBC.
