On This Day – April 9, 1934

On board the Orama, due at Melbourne on April 9, is George Thirlwell, a well-known English actor, who has been engaged to appear in the first production in Australia of “Ten Minute Alibi” to be given in Melbourne in the middle of April. Mr Thirlwell was in the cast of “Overture” and “The Little Napoleon” in London, where he also appeared in “Othello.” He played a prominent part, too in the Fox picture, “The Laughter of Fools,” based on the stage play of the same name, in which the late John D. O’Hara appeared in Australia.
