| Sally Ann Howes - in Jane Austen's parlance "A very handsome woman"
Sally Ann Howes was a most photogenic actress in her best film years.Her two films that spring to mind are "The Admirable Crichton" (1957) playing Lady Mary and "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" (1968) playing Truly Scrumptious.As an ingénue in "Thursday's Child" (1943) she was very young to take the lead role with Wilfred Lawson but your eyes are constantly drawn to her and the film director is especially generous with close ups of her.It is a simple tale of the making of a child film star and her subsequent very mature decision to renounce temporary fame & fortune for a more substantial general education especially science in the footsteps of her heroine Madame Curie, who along with her husband Pierre invented radium.

FGM's above very fulsome user comments from 2004 explain the plot so I will not repeat them.I enjoyed this film which you can see in its entirety on (as of July 2012) for those viewers who wish to see this rare film and to see how Sally's most impressive looks matured into beauty since 1943.
