*Her Hollywood career began after talent scouts for both Paramount and Universal saw her perform in Pasadena Playhouse in 1932. In a famous dispute, the heads of the two studios flipped a coin and Universal won. Then, she played lead roles for director James Whale, including The Old Dark House (1932) opposite Boris Karloff.During the production Gloria Stuart was rather dismissive of the British members of the cast, regarding them as “aloof” and “snooty.” Indeed, she remarked that Boris Karloff was the most unpleasant of them all, spurring unnecessary rows with James Whale which delayed production for hours when Whale refused to return to the set. She would later refer to Karloff as “guileful” and “self-absorbed.”
