Today’s Birthday: RUTH ELLIS (1926)


Ruth Ellis (1926)

Ellis has the notorious distinction of being the last woman executed in the UK. In 1955, a jury took just 14 minutes to convict her of murdering her lover, racecar driver David Blakely.

In what film does Ellis have an uncredited cameo? More… Discuss

His position on this issue eventually led to war with Prussia. What was the popular king’s motto? More… Discuss
