Gabrielle Ray

'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

The Pittsburgh Press – 1912

Paris, Jan, 16. – The engagement of Miss Gabrielle Ray, the beautiful dancer and popular musical comedy star to Eric Loder, tall, handsome, young, wealthy, blue-blooded, has been announced. Before Manuel was detached from the Portuguese throne he paid ardent court to Miss Ray, only to get “turned down” in no uncertain tones when his wooing carried him so far as to invite the actress to visit Lisbon. It was the universal opinion on the boulevards that Gabrielle Ray could easily have taken the King from Gabrielle (Gaby) Deslys if she had wanted a royal admirer. Manuel received the first shock of his young life when Miss Ray handed him “the mitten” before all Paris just at a time when the boy king thought himself irresistible in the realms of love.
