Gloria Stuart, Melvyn Douglas, and Lilian Bond in Das Haus des Grauens (1932)

Turned down Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1938) because she felt that the material was not to her dramatic acting abilities; however, Darryl F. Zanuck forced her to do the picture, and explained that she would be seen by millions, due to Shirley Temple's popularity. Stuart agreed in a 1998 interview that Zanuck was correct.

Randolph Scott and Gloria Stuart in Shirley auf Welle 303 (1938)

In Gold Diggers of 1935 (1935), Stuart played a young woman whose mother pushes her to marry an unlikable rich man, but the young woman falls in love with a poor man. In Titanic (1997), Stuart's character did the very same thing 84 years earlier.

Gloria Stuart and Dick Powell in Die Goldgräber von 1935 (1935)

At the height of her early career as a contract player for 20th Century Fox, a young fan of Stuart's--Ray Pearl, from Chicago--had her portrait tattooed across his chest. Stuart met with Pearl in person, an event which was photographed and profiled in Life magazine in fall 1937.

Although this was rumored that she was buried at several well-known Hollywood cemeteries, Gloria Stuart was cremated and her ashes were distributed, according to her lifelong wishes, in Santa Monica Bay, as family, friends and Titanic (1997) crew and cast members stood on the Santa Monica Pier.
