Johnny Dallas

We recently acquired the library of the late Johnny Dallas: actor, singer and pantomime dame. Johnny Dallas was a leading figure in UK light entertainment for nearly 70 years. His obituary from the ‘The Stage’ by Mark Ritchie can be found at:?The Stage / Features / Obituaries / Johnny Dallas.

Inscribed to Johnny Dallas

Johnny’s effects had been stored for some time by his niece in Oswestry, Shropshire. We were put in touch by a mutual friend and were lucky enough to be able to purchase both Johnny’s books as well as his extensive collection of sheet music. His niece sold Johnny’s flamboyant pantomime dame costumes on eBay to a dealer in London. The books are largely show-business auto/biography ranging from international cinema stars to UK television and stage performers. There is also an interesting selection of related items, as well as a few ‘trade’ publications. The collection includes several books signed by the author, with one of two inscribed personally to Johnny. Many of these are now listed in our inventory, with more being added on a regular basis.

The extensive sheet music collection ranges from show tunes and classic pop songs to music hall and novelty numbers. Johnny used many of these in his various acts and it is fair to say that some of them have seen better days. However, the majority have been well looked after and we have started to list these on the Hall of Books inventory.
