The golden age of Hollywood. I first saw the beautiful Gloria Stuart in James Whale’s 1932 spook-thriller The Old Dark House but most know her as the character Rose, whose memories tell the story of Titanic in James Cameron’s blockbuster. Gloria was born on a dining table in Santa Monica and went on to lead an incredibly rich life, full of acting, art and activism, but not without heartache. She was a founding member of the Screen Actors Guild, formed the Hollywood Anti-Nazi League and was friends with Dorothy Parker and Christopher Isherwood. Truly a Hollywood icon, Gloria passed away in 2010 at the age of 100. #hollywood #walkoffame #losangeles #lastory #gloriastuart #seeingstars (at Hollywood Walk of Fame)
