Pearl Argyle (Wellman) was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 1910. She studied with Rambert and Legat and made her debut in 1926 with Rambert's company. Then became ballerina with the Camargo Society. Principal dancer with Vic-Wells Ballet 1935-38. She was an early muse to Ashton and created roles in his Facade and Lady of Shalott (1931). She was not a strong technician but noted for her outstanding beauty, especially her exquisite hands and arms. In 1938 she married a film director and moved to America, where performed in several Broadway musicals. She died sadly of a sudden cerebral hemorrhage while visiting her husband in New York.

*NOTE: I have been trying to find as much information on this lady as I can as I would love to write a biography of her. Please contact me if you have any information or rare photos. Thank you!*
