1930s Hollywood Diva Orchidaceous Adrienne Ames

Undoubtedly, one of the most beautiful actresses of the time, and besides, recognized as the most well-dressed actresses in the US, Adrienne Ames lived short life. Born in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1907, Adrienne Ames was Hollywood star in the late 1920s – 1930s. For example, only in 1932 she appeared in four films, such as Guilty as Hell, The Death Kiss, Sinners in the Sun, and Merrily We Go to Hell. Unfortunately, her film career lasted only 10 years. 39-year-old Adrienne Ames died of cancer on May 31, 1947 in New York (USA). The actress was buried in “Oakwood Cemetery” next to her younger sister Gladys McClure, who, just like her, died in her youth 14 years before her.
Born in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1907, Adrienne Ames hit Hollywood in the late 1920s. Although her career only lasted about 10 years, she crammed a lot of living into it, with high-profile marriages (and divorces) and her reputation as a clothes horse and glamor queen par excellence far outshone her reputation as an actress.

In 1931 she married actor Bruce Cabot after leaving her second husband, a rich New York City stockbroker, but that marriage only lasted six years. In her divorce she told the court that the main reason she left him was that he was a violent, uncontrollable drunk. In 1938 the pair appeared before a US Tax Appeals Board to explain why she wrote off more than $9000 in wardrobe and jewelry on her 1934 tax form, which she claimed was necessary for “professional reasons” (as was her maid). She claimed that her “daily expenses” included flowers, massages, taxis and beauty work.

Her career lasted from 1929 to 1940, during which she appeared in about 30 films, mostly “B” pictures. The best-known of her movies would probably be You’re Telling Me! (1934) with W.C. Fields. After her film career ended she worked as a radio commentator.

She died in New York City in 1947 after a long illness.
