Film History...

Silent film actress Gertrude Olmstead Leonard was a busy, in demand star having over 60 film credits to her name during her film career in the 1920's. Gertrude lived here at the Gaylord during this time, with her husband, multi-Oscar nominated director Robert Z. Leonard. Here, she is pictured from our August 1926 issue of the 'Gaylord Glimpses.' In 1925, she starred with the magnificent character actor Lon Chaney in 'The Monster.' In 1926, Gertrude starred alongside film icon Greta Garbo in 'Torrent' and had top billing over the Joan Crawford in 'The Boob,' also from 1926. These are just a couple of her stand-out performances.

The Gaylord was the address to live in, at the time and we still continue that spirit today.
