Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 245
In honor of today’s holiday, here is a photo of Ann Dvorak and Leslie Fenton hard at work on their Van Nuys ranch in 1933.
Even though Ann & Leslie joined the Screen Actors Guild pretty early on, I don’t have a sense of how strongly they supported the union. As far as I can tell, they were not active or vocal members and they even withdrew their membership for a time, something that was almost unheard of, according to SAG’s archivist. They eventually rejoined, which was a decision that would serve Ann well in her post-retirement years.
