GABRIELLE RAY

in “Peggy”

 

 

Miss Gabrielle Ray has a big part and trips daintily through it, adorning it with all those attractive small mannerisms that have made her the idol of a large and enthusiastic public.

She has a secret but sincere affection for sticky toffee, and adores dancing with her whole soul. Practising is a pleasure to her, and at home she will turn on a gramophone and dance to it happily for hours.

Miss Ray’s steps have a thistledown lightness that no one surpasses; and she possesses a quaint, childlike charm all her own. And, in addition, her bathing suit is adorable.

Miss Gabrielle Ray

Miss Gabrielle Ray, the heroine of the first footlight romance of the year, is the favourite of a very large public in London. One of the prettiest and daintiest stars of the musical comedy stage, she has danced her way into the hearts in a score of successes. She shared the popularity of Miss Lily Elsie in “The Merry Widow” and “The Dollar Princess” at Daly’s Theatre, and made a great hit in “Peggy,” which ran at The Gaiety most of last year. Miss Ray has, however, a wider claim to distinction than even her popularity in the theatre gives her. She is the most photographed stage beauty of the day, and when the picture postcard craze was at its height far outstripped all rivals as a postcard favourite. One firm of photographers alone stated to have sold over seven million postcards bearing her photograph during the past few years. The selfish man who is robbing London of yet another of its most popular actresses is Mr.  Eric Loder, a grandson of Sir Robert Loder, Bart., and nephew of Mr. G. W. E. Loder, formerly M. P. for Brighton and Major Eustace Loder, a well known personality on the turf. He is an enthusiastic motorist, and is a popular figure at Brooklands.
