Virginia Bruce Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

American leading lady of the 1930s and 1940s, Virginia Bruce was born in Minnesota but grew up in Fargo, North Dakota, and came to California to attend college. Her blond good looks got her an entry into films, and after a few extra roles and bit parts she began to make serious inroads as a leading woman in secondary films and as the "other" woman ...

1My chief purpose in life is to fall in love. I don't know why I want to, but I do.
1Pale-eyed blonde in lead Hollywood roles during the 30's to mid-40's, though often in "B" entries as well.
2Cousin of actress Ruth Hart.
3Her great-grandson is actor Hutch Dano.
4She was a very active member of both the Hollywood Democratic Committee and The Hollywood Anti-Nazi League and donated much of her time and money to many liberal causes (such as the Civil Rights Movement and the creation of The United Nations) and political candidates (including Franklin D. Roosevelt, Henry Wallace, Adlai Stevenson, John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, and Jimmy Carter) during her lifetime.
5Coached by Roger Edens her soprano voice was used to introduce the Cole Porter song "I've Got You Under My Skin" to film audiences in the MGM musical Born to Dance (1936), singing the song to James Stewart.
6According to Scott O'Brien's biography entitled "Virginia Bruce: Under My Skin," and his accompanying article on Virginia for Classic Images (February, 2010), Virginia was "discovered" by director William Beaudine when the young beauty accompanied her aunt, a clothing designer, to the home of a client, Mrs. Beaudine. Virginia played the piano and sang for him that day. Paramount, under Beaudine's suggestion, took an option out on her and placed her in walk-on and bit parts, her first being Beaudine's Fugitives (1929).
7Lovely but demure, and not especially ambitious or self-promoting, she was prodded by her parents, who were going through financial reversals, to skip her initial plans on a music education at UCLA and pursue film work.
8Failed seven screen tests for the lead in Red-Headed Woman (1932), which went to Jean Harlow.
9Her promising "A" MGM status was hurt following the death of Irving Thalberg. She subsequently was relegated to "B" films.
10Her brother Stanley Briggs was married to Buddy Ebsen's sister and dance partner Vilma Ebsen.
11Very good friends with Cesar Romero and Joan Crawford.
12Her third husband Ali Ipar ventured into a misguided Turkish shipping business that eventually put him behind bars. Virginia was a major contributor to the business.
13Portrayed soprano Jenny Lind in The Mighty Barnum (1934) and a character loosely based on Florenz Ziegfeld Jr.'s mistress Lillian Lorraine in The Great Ziegfeld (1936).
14After ex-husband John Gilbert died in 1936, she made 14 movies in 16 months.
15Her daughter Susan Ann Gilbert was born in 1933. She also had a son, Christopher Ruben, in 1941.
16She was divorced from Ali Ipar for the first time in 1951 when he began his compulsory Turkish army service because Turkish law forbids commissions to men married to foreigners.
17Was one of the 20 original The Goldwyn Girls, along with Betty Grable, Paulette Goddard and Ann Sothern.
