Gaby Deslys (circa 1910s)


French danseuse, singer, and actress of the early 20th century.

During the 1910s she was exceedingly popular worldwide, making $4,000 a week in the United States alone. She performed several times on Broadway, at the Winter Garden Theater, and performed in a show with a young Al Jolson. Her dancing was so popular that The Gaby Glide was named for her.

Renowned for her beauty she was courted by several wealthy gentlemen including King Manuel II of Portugal. She eventually made the leap to silent films, making her only US film "Her Triumph" with Famous Players-Lasky in 1915. She would make a handful of films in France before her death.

She died from complications of "Spanish" influenza in Paris on 11 February 1920, at the age of 38.
