Dr. Macro's Annex (pic 01)

Birth name: Ada May Weeks. Ada May performed in Ziegfeld's musical Rio Rita (1927-1928).

"Versatile dancer of the stage and screen, Ada-May (Ada May Weeks) first headlined on Broadway in the 1924 musical “Lollipop.” A native of Long Island, she danced in public at age 5, and by high school had mastered ballroom, ballet, tap, and “aesthetic” (modern) dance. At age 14, she understudied Marilyn Miller in “Around the World” and worked as a solo dancer for Ziegfeld in the Midnight Frolic. Ada-May discovered a talent for comedy and quickly adapted to speaking parts, playing effectively in minor roles in “Fancy Free,” “Listen Lester,” and “Jim Jam Jems.” In 1927 she played a lead role in “Rio Rita,” the musical hit that opened the new Ziegfeld Theater."

(February 10, 1898 - January 3, 1992) Dame Judith Anderson was an Australian Tony and Emmy award winning actress of stage and screen. She is generally regarded by theatre critics as the greatest classical actress produced by Australia. Anderson made her professional debut as Francee Anderson in 1915 at the age of 17. Judith Anderson performed on Broadway from 1923-1982.

In films, she was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca (1940). As the housekeeper Mrs. Danvers, Judith Anderson was required to mentally torment the young bride, the "second Mrs. de Winter" (Joan Fontaine), even encouraging her to commit suicide; and to taunt her husband (Laurence Olivier) with the memory of his first wife, the never-seen "Rebecca" of the title. "Mrs. Danvers" as conceived by Judith Anderson is widely considered one of the screen's most memorable and sexually ambiguous female villains.

Judith Anderson was created a Dame Commander of the British Empire (DBE) in 1960 and thereafter was often billed as "Dame Judith Anderson". On June 10, 1991, in the Queen's Birthday Honours, she was named a Companion in the Order of Australia (AC) "in recognition of service to the performing arts".
