Odette Myrtil 1898 –1978

Myrtil resided in New Hope, Pennsylvania during most of her later life. From 1955 to 1958 she managed The Playhouse Inn, located next door to the Bucks County Playhouse. From 1961 to 1976 she operated the New Hope restaurant Chez Odette which had later become a different restaurant under newer ownership bearing her name, Odette’s Restaurant. The restaurant is currently abandoned and suffered severe damage from flooding in the mid-2000s. During her life, Myrtil was married twice: for eight years to vaudeville performer Robert Adams and later to film director and producer Stanley Logan. She died in nearby Doylestown, Pennsylvania in 1978 at age 80.
