Gertrude Lawrence as Doriw Gow in "Fumed Oak"

Gertrude Lawrence is one of the very few stage or film celebrities who possess a glamour that is an essential part of their personalities and not in any way manufactured for them by clever publicity agents. Glamour is the rarest and most valuable of all stage gifts, and when Miss Lawrence elects to divest herself of it the effect of the contrast is most impressive. One could hardly have a better example of "the little more and how much it is" than the difference between the Miss Lawrence of one picture and the dreary suburban wife of the other.
