30 Gorgeous Photos of Verree Teasdale in the 1930s

Born 1903 in Spokane, Washington, American actress Verree Teasdale debuted on Broadway, straight from the Institute Players, as the “caustic-tongued poseur” Augusta Winslow Martin in The Youngest (1924). She performed regularly on Broadway until 1932.

After co-starring in Somerset Maugham’s play The Constant Wife with Ethel Barrymore in 1926–1927, Teasdale was offered a film contract, and her first film, Syncopation, was released in 1929. She appeared older than her physical age, which enabled her to play bored society wives, scheming other women and second leads in comedies such as Roman Scandals (1933). In 1935, she played Hippolyta in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Teasdale retired after the radio program finished its run, keeping busy with her hobby of costume design. She died in 1987, in Culver City, California, aged 83. Take a look at these gorgeous photos to see the beauty of young Verree Teasdale in the 1930s.
