Princess Natalie Paley heads to Hollywood

June 29, 1935

Princess Natalie Paley, the youngest daughter of Grand Duke Paul of Russia and his morganatic wife, Princess Olga Paley,  passed through Chicago today en route to Hollywood "for her first venture in American motion pictures," reports the Chicago Tribune. 

The 29-year-old princess wore a dress designed by her husband, Lucien LeLong, a Paris couturier. She is accompanied by her maid and a dog, and her "conversational efforts were directed toward the problem of finding suitable American made biscuits for the dog."
