another 1930s beauty
Women were so beautiful in the 1930s and 1940s. There's a lot of beautiful women today too of course, but not in that sweet, old fashioned romantic way they were back then. Virginia was another example of that. She was great in "The great zZiegfeld', especially as the beautiful princess on top of the wedding cake standing with those other beautiful girls sitting on the top part of the gigantic stairway. She also sang beautifully her one line in " you never looked so beautiful". Virginia was also great in " Born to dance", especially when she sang "under my skin". She was also great in "Invisible woman".
Virginia Bruce - Under My Skin
- Scott O'Brien
Virginia Bruce - Under My Skin (BearManor) is the only available biography on this lovely, talented actress. I first became fascinated with her understated, impressive acting when I saw Dangerous Corner (1934). And who could have better played the temperamental Ziegfeld girl in The Great Ziegfeld (1936)? Virginia had worked with Ziegfeld on Broadway. It was great to have the cooperation of her nephew Vincent Briggs when writing her biography. Karen Sharpe Kramer (director Stanley Kramer's wife) also had amazing things to share about Virginia Bruce.
I am sorry for the spelling oversight of Virginia..and Ruben.
Virgina Bruce and her family
I grew up with the Rueben Grandchildren..we were some what cousin's by marriage..my Aunt married and had a child with Leo Marquez, who also fathered a child earlier with daughter Susan Gilbert. The son Virgina Bruce had with Walter Rueben was Christopher, he married and had 4 children. They were raised in Pacific Palisades, being a native of the Palisades myself..The Rueben's were friendly and funny. I remember as a child visiting Virgina, with one of her Granddaughters..we would walk to her home after school(we went to Palisades Elementary together). Very lovely family..meaning her son Chris and daughter-in-law Carol. He deserves to have a name in the bio...
She cetainly had beauty! In her day it was all about looks and the image the studio made out of you that made you a star, it had little to do with acting, Ann Sothern said that was a fact! Virginia certainly was a beauty! I think she got a bad rap! I watched her for the first time in "Downstairs" and I really enjoyed her!
I LOVE VIRGINIA BRUCE
I don't understand why Virginia never hit the 'A' list of actresses, but she is without a doubt my favorite actress of the thirties. Her beauty and charisma sweep me away in an avalanche of desire. The sound of her melodic voice sends pearls of delight down my spine and engulfs me in a hypnotic rapture. She's magnificent and I absolutely adore her.

Presenting Virginia Bruce
Virginia Bruce was a truly remarkable actress of 1930s & 40s films. She truly was a rising star as well as an individual who A.M.P.A.S, never acknowledged for her acting abilities. To those workes of TCM.com who review this I've sent some biogrophical info to you in hopes of your putting them in. I hope you find. If not I'll be sending them over and over again until its put in. Ms. Bruce is a star who must never fade.
