The Official website of Annette Andre  


Ever since I made the move from New York to S. California, I’ve been slowly unpacking and adding to an 1890’s wooden theatrical trunk I bought in a London antique shop ages ago.


It was in remarkably good nick and still had some of the transit labels recording its owner’s movements from one theatre to another – Theatre Royal Bath to Drury Lane London, Empire Liverpool to Abbey Theatre Dublin.


I’m very attached to this treasure from the past and I’ve filled it with a carefully chosen collection of photos, news clippings and reviews, theatre programmes and bits and pieces of memorabilia and clothing that have a personal meaning in my life.


I’ll be posting some of its contents now and then and hope that you’ll find them interesting and perhaps worthy of comment. I’d truly love to hear your thoughts.

Annette with Benny HillFor starters, I’ve selected this photo of Benny Hill and I at the Blue Angel in 1964. I remember Benny taking me there after I’d recorded two episodes of his show at the BBC. If any of you have seen my appearances on the Benny Hill shows that I did over a couple of years, I’d really appreciate hearing from you. I remember what a joy they were to do, and how much I learned from Benny about the art of being funny.
