Goldie Eisman
 

E. was born on 15 March 1906 in Toronto, Canada.

Her father was a tailor.

She learned with a rabbi, in a public school, and in one class in high school.

The family moved to Montreal, and it was there that they came to meet the Yiddish actors who sometimes took her to act in a child's role. This was until 1923, when Jacob Cone brought her down to New York where she performed in the Lipzin Theatre for the first time as a soubrette in the play "Di fargesene kale", together with Lobel and Jacob Cone.

From there she crossed over to Lenox Theatre, where she acted for two seasons. Since 1927 she has been at the National Theatre, and from 1929-30 at Gabel's Public Theatre.

Specialty: Young soubrette.
