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?'

Back to Stage.

Gabrielle Ray, Tired of Married Life, Returns to Footlights.

LONDON, June 11 – Special

Gabrielle Ray, idol of the stage-door Jonnies and reigning beauty of the British stage before she retired from the footlights to marry into a wealthy English family has grown tired of married life. Being just plain Mrs. Eric Loder doesn’t set well with her artistic temperament, and she has gone into the divorce courts to have her marital bonds unloosed.

It was not so long ago that Gabrielle Ray brought consternation and then happiness to young Loder first by keeping the bridegroom, the clergyman and the whole family waiting at the church in vain for her on the day set for the wedding, then by marrying him 24 hours later after he had given up hope. Since then the path of the young pair has not been smooth although young Loder is worth a cool $10,000,000 and has a big income. She has been yearning for the footlights again, for the applause and for the adulation that was hers before she tasted of married life.

As soon as she has secured her divorce Gabrielle Ray will return to the footlights again and once more lead in her train all the idle, gilded and noble youth of the United Kingdom.
