Rita Rio and Her Orchestra (1939) Big Band era

Known as Rita Rio the only female band leader in the Big Band era, she gave a great show with her female band and always included "swing" and dancing. Eager for a movie career, she later changed her name to Dona Drake and did become a film star. This autograph is from her Big Band days. In beautiful condition, it is autographed.

Some of her credits as Rita Rio include: Moonlight and Melody, Sweet Shoe, Beautiful But Dummies, Gals and Gallons.
