Known as the British Shirley Temple, Petula Clark!
She has performed for Winston Churchill, was childhood friends Julie Andrews, danced with Fred Estaire, and flirted with Elvis!
For a star, and more especially a female star to stay on the crest of that rather precarious wave known as show business for almost 50 years is no mean feat, and certainly deserves much reward. This has been achieved and along the way numerous titles contemporary with the various times have been collected: "Britain's most popular child star", "Britain's leading teenage star", "Juke Box Queen", "First Lady of Pop", etc. etc., and she is now one of the few people to whom the title "Superstar" really applies.
