Nita from The Midnight Whirl, photo by Alfred Cheney Johnson

Even more than for her film career, information on Nita Naldi’s stage, radio, and television work has been decidedly sketchy. Please view this page and the pages that follow as the bare-bones beginnings of a work in progress. Check back often. These pages will evolve over time.

Information on Nita’s stage career was derived primarily from Variety, Billboard, The New York Times, The Billy Rose Theatre Collection at the New York Library for the Performing Arts, and The Shubert Archive.   Other individual sources are cited below when applicable.
