Ivor Novello and Mary Ellis
on vacation in 1935

Ivor Novello and Mary Ellis

Ivor Novello (1893-1951), British actor, composer and theatrical producer,
and Mary Ellis (1897-2003), American star actress and singer

(photo: snapshot, probably by Bobby Andrews, England, 1935)

This photograph was taken at about the time of Novello's successful musical play, Glamorous Night, which was first produced at Drury Lane, London, on 2 May 1935. Mary Ellis, lately returned to London from filming in Hollywood, created the role of Militza Hájos in which character she sang two of Novello's most memorable numbers, 'Glamorous Night' and (with Trefor Jones) 'Fold Your Wings.' Both were recorded for the HMV label in London on 9 April 1935.
