Born Today: Caroline Harris – Helped Nazimova Learn English

Caroline Harris and Richard Barthelmess

November 1 is the birthday of Caroline Harris. One of the legends of Alla Nazimova is that when she landed in the United States, she couldn’t speak a word of English. However, she managed to impress Shubert brothers so deeply that they hired her on the condition she learn English in six months. And she did! Yesterday, we came across a posting commemorating the birth of actress Caroline Harris who was credited in her obituary as being the person who taught Alla to speak English.
