Model for Nivea skin cream and Chesterfield cigarettes Elsa was married to actor Gordon Oliver for forty-five years. Oliver's father was a sea captain who was lost at sea when she was a little girl. At that time her mother left for New York to find work leaving the little girl with her grandmother. Oliver eventually moved to the U.S. to be with her mother, finished her schooling and began working as a model. She was a strong advocate and pioneer in the advocacy of organic foods. Oliver was married three times, first to Angus Mackintosh then to Gerard Lambert and in 1949 to Gordon Oliver. (Information provided by Oliver's grandson Ted Otis of Hollywood, California.)
