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?'

Flying Colours – The Sketch – 1916

London is glad to welcome Miss Gabrielle Ray back to the stage, the scene for her of many former triumphs. As a musical-comedy actress she had the distinction of being one of the most photographed of stage beauties. Now she has gone into revue, and, as our illustrations show, has lost none of her charm. In Flying Colours at the Hippodrome, she takes the part of the Milliner Maid in the Fashion Parade scene, and joins Little Tich (as the Manager) in a highly successful duet, “I Didn’t Believe You,” and another song, with chorus of milliners. In the Riding School,” she appears as the Poodle Clown.

The Sketch, 11th October 1916

Mr De Courville, writing in the Daily Mirror, “The Morning’s Gossip,” 2nd September 1916 asks the question, “has anyone seen Miss Gabrielle Ray’s poodle dog? Well, you will all be asking the question presently.”
