Tommy Steele

Tommy Steele is an English-born entertainer - actor, singer, and musician. He is considered to be Britain's first teen idol and rock 'n' roll star, in the 1950s, with his recording of "Singing the Blues" reaching #1 on the charts.

Mr. Steele's musical talent led to his performing in stage and film musicals. Of the latter, he starred in "Half a Sixpence" (1967), "The Happiest Millionaire" (1967), and "Finian's Rainbow" (1968).

I sent this photo to Mr. Steele in 1980, to his residence in England, and he returned it within one month.
