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?'

Gabrielle Ray – Betty – The Tatler – Wednesday 10th November 1915

Wonderful Gertie and Graceful “Gabs.”

Only the best of the species remain – Gertie Millar at the Palace and now Gabrielle Ray in Betty at Daly’s. Gertie Millar has not cultivated the “flashing” manner of review, but she has perfected the daintier one of musical-comedy, and the contrast between, say, Teddie Gerard and herself is piquant. Gabrielle Ray has returned far more vital and “alive” than when she went away. She puts into her work a flair and a “go” which was never there in her former Gaiety days. And, if anything, she is more bewitching to look at than ever! In the dainty, rather meaningless, dancing of musical-comedy she is still unapproached. Altogether her art has taken a new lease of life, and Betty will certainly profit by her coming. Lauri de Frece, in the part left vacant by the departure of W. H. Berry to the Adelphi, is not yet as funny as his predecessor, but, given time, he will certainly prove his worth. He is one of the few comedians who, what- ever part they play, are always artists, never simply buffoons.

Gabrielle Ray – See See – The Tatler – Wednesday 25th July 1906

Miss Gabrielle Ray

 

In the Chinese comic opera, “See-See,” at the Prince of Wales’s Theatre Miss Gabrielle Ray takes the part of the little boy attendant of the heroine. She has some pretty little songs, notably “See-See’s So-Hei” and “Chinese Dolls.” Her dances are charming.

Eric Loder – The Tatler – Wednesday 15th December 1926

Aboard Mr. Claude Grahame White’s S.Y. “Ethleen.”

At the moment this picture was taken this yacht was lying off Monte Carlo, which is rapidly filling up with winter visitors. The names in this group aboard the famous aviator’s yacht are: Mrs. Eric Loder, Mrs. Grahame White (better known as Miss Ethel Levy, the famous American actress), Mr. Claude Grahame White, Lady Dudley (who was Miss Gertie Millar), and Major Eric Loder. Mr. Grahame White carries his crack motor-boat, the “T. N. T.,” aboard the yacht, and she has been creating quite a stir with her high-speed performances.

A Motor Transport Dinner

 

A novel dinner was given recently by Mr. Eric Loder (second from right), the famous motorist, at the Savoy Restaurant to his brother officers of the 335th Company Motor Transport. The table was not decorated with flowers in the ordinary way but with a ziz-zag road across it along which motor transport travelled to and fro. The wine was served from motor spirit tins. The menu was as follows: Nuts and Bolts, engine-oil soup, fish smashed radiator and sauce, saddle of clutch, accessories, duck non-skid, and Packard salad.
