From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alice Russon, from a 1907 publication.

Alice Russon was an Irish actress, singer, and dancer in musical comedies and in silent films.

Early life

Alice Russon was born in Dublin.[1]


On stage, Russon appeared in The Girl from Kay's (1904),[2] Cinderella (1907), The Belle of Mayfair (1907),[3] Mr. George (1907),[4] Little Red Riding Hood (1908),[5] The Arcadians (1911),[6] Ready Money (1912-1913),[7] Something Simple (1916), and Anthony in Wonderland (1917). She was on a variety show bill with Will Rogers headlining, at the Palace Theatre in Oklahoma in 1906.[8] In 1912 and 1913, she was in Australia,[9] where she starred in a pantomime show, Puss in Boots, in Melbourne.[10] A reviewer in Atlanta, Georgia in 1910 described her as "one of the daintiest and most winsome little women who ever trod the land that lies beyond the footlights in Atlanta."[11]

In 1911, while working in San Francisco, California, she submitted a proposal for a "theatorium" at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition to be held in that city in 1915.[12]

British silent films featuring Alice Russon include All Men Are Liars (1919), After Many Days (1918) and Democracy (1918).[13]

Personal life

She married a fellow actor, Vernon Davidson. They had at least one child by 1913.[14][15] She owned a camera and enjoyed taking photos when she was traveling for work.[16]
