Mitzi Hajos performed on Broadway from 1911-1942.

"Mitzi Hajos—this diminutive prima dona from Hungary became a star in comic operas when William Morris brought her to Broadway during the World War I with “Sari” and “Pom-Pom.” Blessed with a sweet lyric soprano, nimble feet, and wit, she won a great popular audience. Indeed one anonymous admirer bestowed upon her an 11 carat diamond which she wore as a pendant as a trademark early in her career. She made the popularity of Jerome Kern’s “Head Over Heals” in 1918. She was distinctive for not seeking a career in grand opera. Her versatility and stage presence enabled her transition into an actress in the 1930s. She played Gay Wellington in 1936’s smash hit, “You Can’t Take it With You.” [David S. Shields]

A sprightly comedian, she was always in demand throughout the 1910s and 1920s. Violet Heming performed on Broadway from 1908 to 1952. She also performed in films from 1910-1932, returning in 1944 for a tv appearance.

Hibbard, Edna: [ACJ]

imdb.com

(May 12, 1895 - December 26, 1942) Edna Hibbard performed on Broadway from 1918-1932. She also performed in a few silent films from 1915-1922.

"Born into a theatrical family and trained from girlhood in the Poli stock company, Edna Hibbard emerged on Broadway out of Jerome Kern’s WWI ensemble musicals. Her first credited role was as Zoie Hardy, the ingenue in 1918’s “Rock-a-bye Baby.” A brunette of rather short stature, she had the winsomeness of Marguerite Clark, but was capable of shows of temperament. In the early 1920s she evolved into a sharp-witted comedienne with a quick delivery and a lyric soprano, if a scene needed a song; she embodied a type that became a fixture on the 1920s stage. Hibbard enjoyed steady work throughout the Jazz Age, appearing in sixteen productions through 1932, with memorable roles in two major hits, Angela Hardy in “The Bad Man” and the sardonic Dorothy who secured most of the laughs in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.” Yet her range extended far beyond the urbane female moderns of 1920s broadway comedy. In “Gringo” she played the half-breed daughter of an American minor and a Mexican-Indian woman with affecting realism. Because of the distinctive quality of her voice she was hired to perform in the early Vitaphone sound movie, “Ill Wind” . Yet Hibbard’s film work was always a secondary aspect of her performing career. The later 1930s found her occasionally on the road. She died in 1942." [David S. Shields]

One of her portraits is signed "To my leading lady from me your leading man, Cheney 1931." From Bob's JAB book: "After Ziegfeld's death, [Alfred Cheney Johnston] formed a corporation with model Margaret Horan (who also posed for Man Ray) and attempted to organize his own Follies-type revue but it failed." Margaret Horan became a very famous, sought after high fashion model in the 1930s and 1940s, posing for such photographers as Man Ray and Edward Steichen.

Dr. Macro's Annex (pics 01 & 02)

(November 14, 1895 - August 22, 1973) Louise Huff was a silent film actress who performed in films from 1913-1922.

"Louise Huff was one of the more talented “curled girls” who sprang up like mushrooms during the second decade of the twentieth century in the wake of Mary Pickford’s rise to fame. A native of Georgia, yet educated at Horace Mann School in New York City, she proved more talented than most of these cinematic ingénues, winning a growing popularity that climaxed into stardom with “Seventeen,” Famous Player’s adaptation of Booth Tarkington’s popular novel of female adolescence. Like Pickford, Huff came to the movies after learning her craft on the stage. She played in the original stage version of “Ben-Hur,” and appeared in “Graustark.” The Lubin Company of Philadelphia hired her in 1913 and used her in a variety of roles until World Pictures of New York bought out her contract. Famous Players realized that Huff’s five feet, one inch stature, light brown hair and violet eyes, would enable her to play girl roles into her late twenties. They signed her as a female lead and worked her until 1922. Though graceful, Huff had a tendency to telegraph emotions in scenes, so that the growing naturalism of screen acting, made her gestures seem increasingly artificial." [David S. Shields]

Hyson, Dorothy: [ACJ]

imdb.com

(December 24, 1914 - May 23, 1996) Dorothy Hyson was the daughter of Dorothy Dickson and Carl Hyson and was one of the British cinema and theatre's most gifted players. Noted for her great beauty and striking looks the songwriters Rogers and Hart dedicated their song 'The Most Beautiful Girl in the World' to her. Her second husband, actor Anthony Quayle, described her as "the most beautiful creature I have ever seen."

She made her London stage debut at the age of 12 at the Savoy Theatre in J.M. Barrie's Quality Street and the following year acted in Daisy Ashford's The Young Visitors (Strand Theatre) prompting the leading critic of the day, James Agate, to write: "I think in Dorothy Hyson we may have the comedienne of the future."

In 1933 Ivor Novello, impressed by her charm and beauty, offered her the role of Gladys Cooper's daughter in his play Flies In The Sun. Later successes included Maxwell Anderson's comedy Saturday's Children and Touch Wood, in which she co-starred with Flora Robson.

In March 1935 she appeared with Laurence Olivier in the play The Ringmaster, directed in London's West End by Raymond Massey. At the age of 20 she married the British film actor Robert Douglas.

She was rarely off the West End stage throughout the thirties and forties and in June 1947 married Anthony Quayle. In later years Quayle said of his wife, "Without her I could have been nothing - and done nothing. With her love and help, our two lives joined together and I could lift the world up and carry it aloft."

Dorothy Hyson also performed in films from 1933-1946 and on Broadway in 1935.
