  The daughter of Ernest James Wellman and Mary Wellman of Johannesburg, she later became known as Pearl Argyle by her fellow students while studying ballet. She gained fame as a ballerina in London and Paris, but was even more renowned for her remarkable beauty. Pearl, along with her husband and son, fled Nazi Germany for the safety of America, eventually settling in Los Angeles in 1939. Records of Argyle's stage career are relatively scarce, but she began her film work in 1932 and is credited with several roles, working with the likes of Anna Mae Wong and Ralph Richardson. Also apparently rare are details as to her abrupt demise; Argyle died (at age 36) of a sudden cerebral hemorrhage while visiting her husband in New York.
