Sally Ann Howes (born July 20, 1930) is a singer and actress holding dual citizenship — born in London, England, she became a naturalized U.S. citizen. Her career on stage, screen and television has spanned over six decades. She is best remembered for the role of Truly Scrumptious in the 1968 musical film, "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang".

Childhood film career

Born in St John's Wood, London and later moving to the family's country house in Essendon, Hertfordshire for the duration of World War II, Sally Ann Howes was a show-business baby who lived a quiet, orderly childhood where she grew up with a nanny and was surrounded by a variety of pets and her parents' theatrical peers, including actor/writer Jack Hulbert and his wife, actress Cicely Courtneidge, who had an adjoining house. Her first taste of the stage was school productions, but as she came from a theatrical family, it was inevitable that another family friend, an agent who was visiting the Howes family for dinner, became impressed with her and not long after suggested the young Sally Ann for a role in a movie. Two hundred young girls had already been screen tested without success, and the producers were desperate to find a talented little girl to play the lead, and they asked her father to please rush in some pictures on the recommendation of the agent. The movie, "Thursday's Child", was written by playwright and screenwriter Rodney Ackland, also a close neighbor to the Howes family, and it would become Ackland's directorial debut."Thursday's Child" (1943) launched her career. A second film, "The Halfway House" (1944), led to her being put under contract by Michael Balcon of Ealing Studios, and this was followed by many other film roles as a child actress including "Dead of Night" (1945) with Sir Michael Redgrave, "Pink String and Sealing Wax" (1946), "Nicholas Nickleby" (1947), "My Sister and I" (1948), "Anna Karenina" (1948), opposite Vivien Leigh.

At age 18 she was given a new, seven-year contract, this time by J. Arthur Rank, and she went on to make the films, "Stop Press Girl" (1949), "The History of Mr. Polly" (1949) opposite John Mills, "Fools Rush In" (1949), and "Due mogli sono troppe" (1950) aka Honeymoon Deferred (UK).

Musical theatre on the West End and Broadway

Howes had begun taking singing lessons on the recommendation of a visiting teacher friend not only to bring out her natural talents but also in effort to lower her speaking voice which was quite high-pitched. While still in her teens, she made her first musical-comedy stage appearance in "Fancy Free". In late 1950 starred in a BBC TV version of "Cinderella".

In 1950 she accepted her first professional stage role in the Sandy Wilson musical, "Caprice", forcing her to terminate her contract with Rank, with whom she'd been unhappy with the film roles and being on "loan out." She was finding gainful employment in television and radio, and she was looking to flex her singing talent, something that both Balcon and Rank had overlooked. "Caprice" was followed by "Bet Your Life" opposite Julie Wilson, Arthur Askey and Brian Reece. She was also simultaneously on the radio with Askey and Reece. In 1953 she starred on the West End in "Paint Your Wagon" with her father, Bobby Howes. The show ran for 18 months. It was followed by "Summer Song", also on the West End, firmly establishing her as a leading musical comedy star. This was followed by her critically acclaimed performance in the stage drama, "A Hatful of Rain." In the early to mid-1950s, she also mixed her theater with television appearances and even modeling, commercials and product endorsements.

She became a popular celebrity in England, even appearing as a comic-strip character in "TV Fun" serial comics and annuals, as a young, wholesome teacher in the wild American west at a time when Western TV shows were very popular. She appeared on the cover of many magazines, most notably "Life" (3 March 1958), when she came to the United States to take over "My Fair Lady" on Broadway.

In late 1957 she was offered the part (for the third time) of taking over for Julie Andrews in "My Fair Lady" on Broadway so that Julie could join the cast in London. She turned it down twice before. The first offer had been to join the USA touring company of the musical, and the second time she declined the part was due to her film commitment for "Admirable Crichton" (1957). With the persistence of Lerner and Loewe, however, she accepted the third time, for a year's contract, but at a higher salary than Julie. She became an instant hit as a very fiery Eliza Doolittle.

Just before taking over "My Fair Lady", Howes married Tony-winning composer Richard Adler ("The Pajama Game", "Damn Yankees") in January 1958. In December 1958 she appeared on Television in Adler's musical adaptation (which was written for her) of O'Henry's short story, "The Gift of the Magi."

She appeared on many TV shows including Perry Como, Dinah Shore, Jack Paar, The Tonight Show, plus appearing in "The Bell Telephone Hour", "The Kraft Music Hall", "The United States Steel Hour". She appeared on "The Ed Sullivan Show" four times.

When her one-year contract in "My Fair Lady" was over, she returned to England to tape six one-hour variety shows entitled "The Sally Ann Howes Show" for the British commercial television network. She was also personally requested to sing for three US Presidents (Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson). She became a frequent guest panelist on game shows and was known for her quick, spontaneous answers.

She returned to Broadway in 1961 in the short run of "Kwamina", another Adler musical which was written for her. She starred opposite Terry Carter, Brock Peters, and Robert Guillaume. The musical centered on an interracial love story and was too controversial in a time when civil rights were hotly contested. The show has not had a Broadway revival since. Coincidentally, her father, Bobby Howes, was also on Broadway that year with a short revival of "Finian's Rainbow", and a cast album exists of that show as well.

In 1962 she starred in a short revival of the musical "Brigadoon" at the New York City Opera and received a Tony nomination, the first performer to be nominated for a revival performance. She recreated the role in a private White House performance at the express invitation of President and Mrs. Kennedy. In 1964 she starred on Broadway opposite Robert Alda and Steve Lawrence in the energetic "What Makes Sammy Run?", which lasted for over 500 performances.

She returned to familiar territory on TV in 1966 with "Brigadoon" opposite Robert Goulet, Peter Falk and some of her Broadway cast, it won six Emmy Awards.

"Chitty Chitty Bang Bang"

In 1967 she began the long film shoot for what would become a celebrated children's classic, and a role for which she would achieve new and lasting fame, that of Truly Scrumptious, the beautiful, aristocratic daughter of a candy magnate in the movie "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" (1968). Despite all her work before and after the film, it is the one role she is consistently identified with and loved for.

"Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" did not, however, restart her film career or launch a career for her in episodic television despite several guest-starring roles in "", "Marcus Welby, M.D.", and "Branigan" and "The Men From Shiloh". Even the pilot "Prudence and the Chief" which was a spoof on "The King and I", did not get picked up as a TV series. In addition, musicals were now failing at the box office and that venue was closed to her. As a result, she returned almost exclusively to the musical stage, appearing in only a few more films/TV productions.

Later theatrical career

In the 1970s she toured Britain with "The King and I" and later the USA with "The Sound of Music". After her debut with the Los Angeles Civic Light Opera in 1972 with "The Sound of Music" she returned to England to star in the stage drama, "Lover," which was written specifically for her.

In the 1970s and 1980s, she began to cross over from standard musicals to operettas. She performed two summers with the Kenley Players in "Blossom Time" and "The Great Waltz", and she later added Franz Lehár's "The Merry Widow" and then two seasons of Stephen Sondheim's "A Little Night Music" at the New York City Opera. She also added the role of Gertrude from "Hamlet" to her repertoire.

In 1990 she debuted her one-woman show, "From This Moment On" at the Edinburgh Festival and at a benefit for the Long Island AIDS Association at the John Drew Theatre in Easthampton, New York.

Her last film was the 1992 miniseries "Judith Krantz's Secrets." That marked her 50th year in film.

Recent projects include her narrations of "Cubby Broccoli, The Man Behind Bond" on the 2000 year release of the DVD "Diamonds Are Forever", "The Making of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang The Musical" (2002), and her appearance in the documentary, "After They Were Famous - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" (2004).

Personal

Except for occasional lectures, charity functions and some Broadway openings, she is semi-retired, although she still hosts events or performs two or three times per year. She is currently on tour in the USA with the Cameron MacIntosh production of "My Fair Lady" (Sept. 2007-Jan 2008), appearing as Mrs. Higgins. When she is not performing, she is an Artistic Advisor for the Palm Beach Theater Guild, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the Royal Poinciana Playhouse in Palm Beach, Florida.

Family

Sally Ann Howes was born to British comedian/actor/singer/variety star Bobby Howes (1895 – 1972) and actress/singer Patricia Malone (1899 – 1971). She is the granddaughter of Capt. J.A.E. Malone (died 1928), London theatrical director of musicals, and she has an older brother, Peter Howes, a retired professional musician and music professor. Her great-grandfather, Joseph Malone, was awarded the Victoria Cross in 1854 during the Crimean War. Her uncle, Pat Malone, was an actor on stage, films, and television.

Howes adopted Richard Adler's two sons, Andrew and Christopher (died 1984) after the death of his first wife (1964).

She has been married to Douglas Rae since the early 1970s.
