Stafford, Marie (probably aka Stafford, Louise) [ACJ]

ibdb.com

ibdb.com

I think we have another "Eva Brady/Eva Grady" case here. I have a photo of Marie Stafford from Theatre Magazine, August 1920, stating she in the Ziegfelds. There is no listing for her in any Ziegfeld show on ibdb. I checked all the 1920's Ziegfeld theatre programs I have and there is a Louise Stafford listed as performing in the Ziegfeld Midnight Frolic of 1920 (May 31 edition) and 1921 (April 11 edition). Perhaps she was moonlighting under another thinly disguised name? Certainly she was performing in the same types of shows at the same time. So I would guess that like Eva Brady/Eva Brady, Marie and Louise Stafford are the same person.


Stanley, Jet (aka Miss Stanley) [no pics]

Dr. Macro's Annex (pic 01)

(February 7, 1895 - May 4, 1961) Anita Stewart was a successful and highly publicly popular American actress and film producer of the early silent film era.


Stokes, Sybil:

ibdb.com

According to a photo in Theatre Magazine, September 1921, Sybil Stokes performed in the Ziegfelds. ibdb doesn't list her as having been in a Ziegfeld production. I don't have the Follies program for that year and she is not listed in the April 1921 Midnight Frolic program from that year so it's likely she performed in a different month or was a chorine.


Stone, Dorothy: [ACJ]

Strain, Drucilla: [ACJ]

ibdb.com

Dr. Macro's Annex (pics 01 - 03)

Although she isn't listed on ibdb.com, Mary (thank you!) pointed out to me by email on Nov 12, 2008 that a photo of her appears in the theatre program for the Ziegfeld Follies of 1931 (July 1, Ziegfeld Theatre). I cannot find her listed in the cast so perhaps she was a chorine in the show. Last year I received this info by email from her 3rd cousin Donna: "I am the 3rd cousin of Drucilla Strain. She came over to my grandma's house many times as she was my grandpa's 1st cousin. The entire family knew she was a Follie. You mentioned on your site that you have no evidence that she ever performed as a Ziegfeld Follie. You are incorrect. She was not only a Follie but the highest paid Ziegfeld Follies, listed as one of the most beautiful and was featured in the centerfold of Vogue Magazine as such. I can not tell you the year of that magazine as I was a child when I saw it and my Uncle took it. She also played "Snooks" in Anything Goes." Thanks, Donna! Great to meet another Ziegfeld girl relative!!!

Swanson, Gloria: [ACJ]

Wikipedia

ibdb.com

imdb.com

Dr. Macro's Annex (pics 03 & 04)

(March 27, 1897 - April 4, 1983) Gloria Swanson performed in films from 1914-1974. She also performed on Broadway from 1945-1952, then again as a replacement in 1969. In her heyday, audiences went to her films not only for her emotional portrayals in lurid romances, but to see her wardrobe. Frequently ornamented with beads, jewels, peacock and ostrich feathers, haute couture of the day or extravagant period pieces, one would hardly suspect that Gloria was barely five feet tall. She was prolific during the silent film era, but her career declined with the advent of "talkies". Her comeback role in the film Sunset Boulevard (1950) mirrored her own life. She portrayed a former silent movie star largely forgotten by audiences of the day. She accepted this role after several other former silent screen actresses (including Mary Pickford, Pola Negri, Mae West, and Greta Garbo) declined. And I adore her!!!!!!


Swords, Marion:
