pearl-whiteOnce in a great while, Millie Stevens would take Ruby to see Pearl White “in her perils.” Ruby recalled, “There wasn’t much money for anything.” There were times when in order to get a hot meal Ruby would go into a diner, order hot water and add ketchup to it. Ruby “tended children, washed dishes, ran errands,”[she said, anything to earn enough money to go to the serials.
