Birth Name

Beryl Wallace Beryl Heischuber

   Dancer and Actress, was the oldest of nine children of Austrian immigrants Harry and Fanny Heischuber. Beryl was popular in the nightclubs and did a few movies before her untimely death in an DC-6 airplane crash (FLIGHT #624) when it hit a power line in Mount Carmel, PA. and exploded, which killed her and forty-two others including Earl Carroll.

   Earl Carroll gave Beryl her big break in 1927 when he hired her to dance in his New York Vanities in 1928. Beryl and Earl would become very close over the years, and formed an intimate relationship (carroll was married) with Beryl as well as headlining at his Restaurant in Hollywood, CA. which also featured a twenty foot neon sign of Beryl.
