Stars of Vaudeville #1001: Leonore Ulric


Today is the birthday of Leonore Ulric (1892-1970). Ulric was a creature of booth stage and screen, zigzagging between both throughout her entire career. She began with midwestern stock companies in Milwaukee, Grand Rapids and Chicago. In the early to mid teens she starred in numerous silent films for Essanay Studios, based out of Chicago. From there she went on to be a Broadway star for David Belasco. And from there, an actress in talking films, in such films as Camille (1936) and Notorious (1946).  And from there back to the stage. She appeared at the Palace and other big time vaudeville venues in the late 1920s.
