Description: 

Marjorie Gateson, born in Brooklyn, New York, was an actress of stage, film and television. At the age of 21, Gateson made her Broadway debut in the 1912 musical “The Dove of Peace”. Other Broadway productions were soon to follow including the 1913 play “The Little Café”, the 1917 musical “Have a Heart”, the 1927 musical comedy “Oh Ernest!”, and the 1930 comedy “As Good as New”. Gateson relocated to Hollywood, where her film career would begin. Gateson was cast in secondary roles, often portraying aloof socialite characters. Gateson’s noted films included the 1935 “Goin’ to Town” and the 1936 “Milky Way”. Gateson made her small screen debut in 1949, appearing in the television soap opera “One Man’s Family”. Gateson’s career would find additional success with other daytime series, including the 1954 drama “The Secret Storm”. This portrait print captures a close up of Gateson's visage, centered left. Gateson has an exposed neck adorned by a bejeweled necklace. Gateson slightly tips her head back as she looks left, with an expression of reflection. Gateson styles her hair in a bobbed fashion, very reminiscent of the 1920 flapper era. The photo has the signature "Hixon- Connelly K.C." in the lower right hand corner of the print.
