Gertrude Astor

Biografi från Wikipedia

From Wikipedia

Gertrude Astor (November 9, 1887 - November 9, 1977) was an

American motion picture character actress, who began her career playing

trombone on a riverboat.

Born in Lakewood, Ohio as a member of the Astor family and

of German descent, Astor joined a woman's band as a trombone player and toured

the states. In New York she left the band to obtain film work and got a job as

an extra before her career took off. Astor was a prolific performer, between

1915 and 1962 she appeared in over 250 movies. Her first known credit is in a

Biograph short in 1915. She then became a contract player at Universal. A tall,

angular and beautiful woman, Astor frequently towered over the leading men of

the era; thus, she was most frequently utilized in comedy roles as aristocrats,

golddiggers and "heroine's best pal".

Her best-known silent appearances were as the visiting stage

star in Stage Struck (1925) with Gloria Swanson, as the vamp who plants stolen

money on Harry Langdon in The Strong Man (1926), and as Laura LaPlante's

wisecracking travelling companion in The Cat and the Canary (1927).

Astor worked prolifically at Hal Roach studios with such

headliners as Laurel and Hardy, Our Gang, and especially Charley Chase. She was

also kept busy at Columbia Pictures' short subjects unit.

She continued to play bits in feature films throughout the

1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. She was briefly glimpsed as the first murder victim in

the Sherlock Holmes adventure The Scarlet Claw and was among the ranks of dress

extras in 1956's Around the World in Eighty Days. Her last appearance was in

John Ford's The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

In her later years, Astor was a welcome guest at several

Sons of the Desert gatherings, and became an honorary member of the Way Out

West tent.

She died in Woodland Hills, California from a stroke. She is

interred in the Abbey of Psalms in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood,
