THE- ALDWYCH THEATRE: MATRIMONIAL OFFICE.

A TRIO OF FAIR BRIDES FROM “THE GAY GORDONS”

COMPANY.

 

1. MISS JENNIE BATEMAN, WHO HAS MARRIED MR. MERVYN DENE. 2. MISS MADGE HODGKINSON, WHO HAS MARRIED MR. PAUL GRISEWOOD.

3. MISS BARBARA DEANE, WHO HAS MARRIED MR. BASIL LODER, OF THE COLDSTREAM GUARDS.

There has been quite an epidemic of marriages amongst members of “The Gay Gordons” company, and it is evident that the Aldwych Theatre is an excellent matrimonial office.  Mr. Charles Frohman is so interested, indeed, that he has promised to make a handsome wedding gift to the next bride in the same company, and to the next and the next, so long as there are any marriageable girls left. As we have noted, Miss Madge Hodgkinson was married to Paul Grisewood, who has taken her to America for a honeymoon trip. Miss Jennie Bateman’s husband, Mr. Mervyn Dene, plays the Marquess of Dalesbury in “The Gay Gordons.”  Mr. Basil Loder, who has married Miss Barbara Deane, is a lieutenant in the Coldstream Guards. Mr. Loder’s portrait is given on another gage in this issue.

Eric Loder – The Sketch – Wednesday 10th March 1920

A Good Win.

 

The Bath Club Squash Rackets Handicap, in which the Prince of Wales reached the final, is really an important contest from the athletic point of view, for the members of the “Bath” play squash pretty assiduously, and many of them are first class performers in good practice. The Prince had to fight his way all through to reach the final against Captain Eric Loder, who has been described as the “fittest man in town.” He is so keen on athletic sport that when in London he has a game of squash practically every day, and there is no game more certain to keep one fit. The Prince, by the way, did not have a big handicap, and there were plenty of other competitors who got more than he did.
