Mini Bio (1)

Born to non-professional parents R.L. and Isabel Rutter in Spokane, Washington, pretty Sally Rutter changed her name to Gale Page and became a brief fixture in films playing primarily wholesome brunettes. A one-time radio actress and singer with Ted Weems' Orchestra, Gale was spotted for films by Warner Bros. in 1938. Although she was consigned mostly to decorative roles in such potboilers as Crime School (1938), Indianapolis Speedway (1939), and They Drive by Night (1940), she was handed the role of her career as one of musical sisters in the classic tearjerker Four Daughters (1938) co-starring the three Lane sisters (Rosemary, Priscilla, and Lola) and appeared in its sequels Daughters Courageous (1939), Four Wives (1939) and Four Mothers (1941). She also won the lead femme role as the altruistic wife in the bio-pic Knute Rockne All American (1940), starring Pat O'Brien in the title role and Ronald ("Win just one for the Gipper") Reagan. Gale's career was decidedly shortlived, however, when she retired from the limelight in 1949 for family life, reappearing just once in Shirley Booth's showcasing film About Mrs. Leslie (1954). Her son, Luchino Solito de Solis Jr. was featured on Broadway in a juvenile role in 1956's "Waiting for Godot."
