Ruby Myers – At the peak of her career, silent movie star Ruby Myers – screen name Sulochana – was one of the highest paid actresses in Indian cinema. Among her best known films was Wildcat Of Bombay (1927), in which she played eight roles including a gardener, a policeman, a street urchin, a Hyderabadi gentleman, a banana seller and an European blonde. So popular was she, that a short film of Mahatma Gandhi inaugurating a khadi exhibition had a dance number from one of Sulochana's films added as a crowd-puller. The Jewish-origin Sulochana made the transition to talkies with some difficulty, taking a year off films to learn Hindi. She made a comeback of sorts with a talkie version of her hit film Madhuri and continued to star in films through the ‘30s. At one time, Sulochana's salary was reported to be higher than that of the Governor of Bombay. Ruby Myers died alone in Mumbai in 1983.
