Hermione Ferdinanda Gingold

Sitter in 40 portraits
Hermione Gingold first appeared on stage at the age of ten as the herald in Pinkie and the Fairies. She played many parts in the theatre and on radio in the 1930s, but she found her true home in revue. Her legendary partnership with Hermione Baddeley ('the two Hermiones') began at the Comedy Theatre in 1941 with Rise Above It, and continued in Sky High at the Phoenix Theatre. It was during this latter show that their rivalry escalated in the press into a famous feud. Her first significant appearance in New York was in 1953 in John Murray Anderson's Almanac. For the rest of her career she was based in America and became particularly well known on talk shows.
