It surprises me that I haven’t seen more of Ruby Keeler. Then again, she wasn’t in that many films.
She stars in one of our latest TCM discoveries, Gold Diggers of 1933.
Her bio’s pretty interesting: Born to an Irish family in Halifax, Nova Scotia… Married Al Jolson in 1928… Got into films herself in 1933… She retired after they divorced and stayed retired for 30 years until her comeback as star of “No No Nanette” on Broadway under Busby Berkeley’s direction in 1971. I’ll have to keep my eyes open for the next airing of 42nd Street–her first picture.
