Land of the hula-hula

Here’s a photograph from the June 4 1932 edition of the Toronto Daily Star of a Broadway actress who was headed to Honolulu.

Gladys George (1904-1954) was the child of two British actors, and had been on the stage herself since the age of three. She was a stage star in the 1920s, and appeared in movies regularly in the 1930s. She was nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award in 1936 for Valiant Is The Word For Carrie.

She was married and divorced four times; her husbands included a millionaire paper manufacturer and a hotel bellboy who was twenty years younger. She battled an assortment of health problems and passed away from a cerebral hemorrhage.

I couldn’t find out what she was doing in Honolulu.
