Anna Neagle
Birth: Oct. 20, 1904
Death: Jun. 3, 1986

Actress. She was a theatrical and cinematic institution in England, and one of the most popular screen actresses of the mid-20th century. She is perhaps best remembered for her role as Queen Victoria in the films "Victoria the Great" (1937) and "Sixty Glorious Years" (1938). She was also a great success in "Spring in Park Lane" (1948), for whish she won the Pictuegoer Medal. Born Majorie Robertson, she came to the stage via the chorus line and, married to the producer Herbert Wilcox, appeared in numurous films during the thirties, playing various heroines of history as in "Nell Gwyn" (1934), "Nurse Edith Cavell" (1939) and Amy Johnson in "They Flew Alone" (1942), plus many other highly acclaimed roles in "Goodnight Vienna" (1932), "Bitter Sweet" (1933), "Holiday Inn" (1936), "London Melody (1937) and others. She cherished her role as the French resistance leader "Odette" (1950) (Mrs Odette Hallowes, G.C.) whom she knew as a friend. It was considered one of her greatest portrayals. Another strong role a year later was her Florence Nightingale in "The Lady with the Lamp." She was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1969 after her greatest stage success in "Charlie Girl" at the Adelphi. She was "as much part of Britain as Dover's white cliffs," one critic cited as saying. (bio by: s.canning)
