Anna Neagle, who began life as Marjorie Robertson, seemed to be in every other film made here in the middle of the last century. Originally a dancer she found fame on the silver screen playing historical figures including Queen Victoria and Edith Cavell, then in musicals. When her screen star waned she made a necessary second fortune (her husband having mismanaged the first) in stage musicals, especially her long run in Charlie Girl. She was made a Dame in 1969.
