A Tragic End Of Merle Oberon – Secrets You Didn’t Know About Merle Oberon.
The mini true story of Merle Oberon. Oberon was born in Bombay, British India, on 19 February 1911. Merle was given "Queenie" as a nickname, in honour of Queen Mary, who visited India along with King George V in 1911. In 1978, the year before her passed away, she agreed to visit Hobart for a Lord Mayoral reception. The Lord Mayor of Hobart became aware shortly before the reception that there was no proof she had been born in Tasmania but, to save face, went ahead with the reception. Shortly after arriving at the reception, Oberon, however, to the disappointment of many, denied she had been born in Tasmania. She then excused herself, claiming illness, and was unavailable to answer any more questions about her background. During her Hobart stay, she remained in her hotel, gave no other interviews, and did not visit the theatre named in her honour.
