British actress of the musical comedy stage, a former beauty pageant winner. She appeared in a few 1930's films, but died from a blood clot to her brain after a fall at her apartment, aged just 41.
At one time she was engaged to Count Anthony de Bohdari.
Unknown to anyone one of her aunts sent a photograph of her to the Daily Mail for the Prettiest Schoolgirl competition without reading the small print which, in addition to winning a sum of money, involved her, during the school holidays, to make an appearance in a play and present a rose to Zena Dare at the end of the first act. Both she and her family were horrified by this.
