Ada Reeve (3 March 1874 – 5 October 1966) was born in London, beginning her career on the stage and screen when she was only four years old. Ten years later, after a serious decline in the health of her father, Charles Reeves née Samuel Isaacs, the family relied upon Ada for financial support. Life in the music hall gave way to a life of international acclaim. An extraordinary woman, the talent of Ada Reeve saw her in near continuous employment for almost eighty years.
