Netflix Movies Starring Paula Trueman

The delightful twinkle in her eye and that elderly mischievous look coming from the tiniest of frames were unmistakable traits in 70s and 80s lightweight films. One of a slew of popular elderly ladies getting their "fifteen minutes" at the time, character actress Paula Trueman was born around the turn of the century on April 25, 1900 (some sources indicate 1907) in New York City. She was the daughter of Joseph Trueman and his wife Eva Cohn Trueman and was educated at Hunter College before preparing for the stage on a fellowship at the Neighborhood Playhouse. Long trained in dance, Paula made her first stage appearance as a musical performer at the Hippodrome in a production of "The Thunderbird" in 1922. From there she appeared in revues, particularly the Grand Street Follies of 1924--staying with that annual show until 1929. Read more on iMDB
