As many of you know, The Croton Historical Society hosted a Croton postcard exhibit IN 2013. Also included in that exhibit were photos and rare memorabilia of Lenore Ulric, a successful Broadway and film star who lived in the village from 1927 until 1951. Miss Ulric, discovered by Broadway playwright and producer David Belasco, starred in such popular vehicles as "Tiger Rose", "Kiki", "The Harem" and "LuLu Belle" and was particularly noted for her portrayals of the "fem fatale" hot-tempered fiery woman. We came across this article on Ulric in our vintage magazine collection for "Kiki", 1922...click on the images below.
Here is her NY Times obituary http://nyti.ms/2tZrZV5
