PERSONAL GOSSIP

 

Phyllis Dare for Variety Stage.

 

It is announced that Phyllis Dare may shortly appear on the music halls.

At the time when the picture postcard craze was at its zenith Miss Phyllis Dare’s features were probably the most popular. 20,000 postcards annually sent for signature! Surely this is bit of a record. Yet it was the experience of Miss Phyllis Dare whose success in various musical comedies launched by Mr. George Edwardes has been phenomenal. Miss Dare usually charged a small fee for signing her name to her postcards, and in one year she was in this way able to distribute sum of £388 to various charities.
