Gertrude Purcell Biography

  • Profession: Screenwriter
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

American screenwriter Gertrude Purcell entered films in 1930, when she signed a Paramount contract. Purcell later worked for Edward Small Productions ([[Feature~V37143~Palooka~palooka]], 1934), Columbia ([[Feature~V96255~If You Could Only Cook~ifyoucouldonlycook]], 1935), Goldwyn ([[Feature~V46809~Stella Dallas~stelladallas]], 1937), and Universal ([[Feature~V13435~Destry Rides Again~destryridesagain]], 1939), among others. Called to testify about her alleged communist-party activities before the HUAC in 1947, she apparently hoped to salvage her career by informing on her fellow "Reds." It was to no avail: Gertrude Purcell never had another screen credit after 1950. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
