Anne Shelton (1928-1994) was one of the greatest British singing stars of the 1940s and 1950s. Her career started with Bert Ambrose and she would later sing with Glenn Miller and Bing Crosby. Her World War Two signature tune was 'Lili Marlene' . In 1956 'Lay Down Your Arms' reached number one in the U.K. charts. These pictures (see next lot) from the Disney studios were probably given to Shelton during her tour of America in 1951. Initially to last for three months, the tour lengthened to eleven months and included visits to New York, Las Vegas, Texas, San Francisco, Hollywood, Chicago, Washington and Philadelphia.
