Phyllis Le Grand

June 11, 2013

Phyllis Le Grand (1888-1981), English musical comedy actress and singer
(photo: unknown, probably Foulsham & Banfield, London, circa 1912)

This hand tinted real photograph postcard of Phyllis Le Grand is no. A.132-3 from the well-known series published about 1915 by the Rotary Photographic Co Ltd of London, with the caption ‘This is a REAL PHOTOGRAPH of a BRITISH BEAUTY’. Miss Le Grand, who first came to notice as Clo-Clo in the first London production of The Merry Widow (Daly’s, 8 June 1907), married the French-born actor and singer Robert Michaelis (Robert Armand René Michaëlis, 1884-1965) in 1913. She appears to have retired from the stage in 1925.
