Adrienne Ames

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Adrienne Ames (August 3, 1907 – May 31, 1947) was an American film actress. Born Adrienne Ruth McClure in Fort Worth, Texas, Ames began her film career in 1927 as a stand-in for Pola Negri. Ames was soon cast in small film roles in silent films. With the advent of talking pictures, Ames' popularity grew and she was usually cast as society women, or in musicals. She made thirty films during the 1930s with her biggest success in George White's Scandals (1934), a film which was also notable as the debut of Alice Faye. Ames also appeared with the three leading men from the 1931 version of Dracula (Bela Lugosi, David Manners, and Edward Van Sloan) in The Death Kiss (1932). By the end of the decade Ames' popularity had diminished and, discouraged, she left Hollywood for New York. In 1941 she became a radio personality, headlining a talk show on station WHN in New York City. Her program was successful, and was scheduled regularly until just before her death in 1947. Ames was married three times, including to actor Bruce Cabot from 1933 until 1937. Ames died of cancer on May 31, 1947 in New York City. She is interred in the Oakwood Cemetery in her hometown of Fort Worth, Texas. For her contributions to the motion picture industry, Adrienne Ames has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1612 Vine Street.   Description above from the Wikipedia article Adrienne Ames, licensed under CC-BY-SA, full list of contributors on Wikipedia.
