Ann Andrews (1895?-1986), was a stage actress for the first half of the twentieth century with a wide range of friends in theatrical and motion pictures circles. Born in Los Angeles, California, on Oct. 13, 1895 (some sources say 1890), Ann Andrews studied at Egan's Dramatic School in Los Angeles, and made her stage debut in the title role of Nju at the Little Theatre in Los Angeles in October 1916. She repeated this role for her New York stage debut the following March. Her subsequent stage appearances included Seven Days Leave (1917), The Hottentot (1920), Her Temporary Husband (1922), The Captive (1926), George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber's The Royal Family of Broadway (1927), Preston Sturges' Recapture (1930), Kaufman & Ferber's Dinner at Eight (1932), Dark Victory (1934), First Love (1936), When We Are Married (1939) and Spring Again (1944). Ann Andrews also toured the United States and Canada in stock, and appeared in two motion pictures, The Girl by the Roadside (1917) and The Cheat (1931).
