Gloria Stuart (1910-2010)


  1. Joan Bennett, The Man Who Reclaimed His Head, 1933.      A blonde Bennett took over from Stuart in Claude Rains’ first outing since The Invisible Man. Despite the title and studio (Universal), this is not a horror story. Just horrible as pacifist Colman tackles warmongering politicos who lie… (No! Say it isn’t so!).
  2. Judith Allen, This Day and Age, 1933.       The forgotten  Cecil B DeMille film - his only gangster talkie - has crimelord Charles Bickford taken down by the LA High School student body. And this is she…!  A goody-two-shoes turning slut to distract the baddy’s henchman, who’s very keen until finding she’s a virgin.  “I like my olives green... but I don't pick ’em myself.”  Grace Bradley was favoured for the role, then  Gloria,  until director CB set his glance upon a model-turning-actress Mari Coleman. He billed her as Judith Allen - and was so furious the papers broke the story that she was married that, legend says, he ruined her career.  Sixty-five years later, at age 88, Gloria was the oldest actress ever nominated for  an  Oscar - for Titanic.  She carried on working until 2004. The secret of her longevitywas the same as Ernest Borgnine’s.  A devotion to masturbation.
