Barbara Stanwyck
(No. 41 in a series of 50 from Player's Navy Cut cigarettes)
Barbara Stanwyck, who was born in Brooklyn, New York, July 16th, 1907, and christened Ruby Stevens, began to earn her living as a telephone operator. Then she appeared in cabaret as a dancer, and later on the musical comedy stage. She was with the famous Ziegfeld Follies before taking up film work. Broadway Nights was her first film, but it was her role in The Locked Door that brought her popularity. Her latest films are Ever in My Heart and Gambling Lady. She is married to Frank Fay, who is well-known in American musical comedy and vaudeville; they have an adopted son, Dion.

Ruby Stevens is a better name, but if I was 'Frank Fay' I'd change it.
