Margaret Lockwood, 1916-90
She was born in India, a daughter of the Raj, brought up in England by a cold, domineering mother, and was an experienced child actor before studying at Rada. Playing costume heroines, career girls and socialites, this brunette beauty became a sort of movie star in Carol Reed's debut Midshipman Easy (1935), the first of seven collaborations with Reed, and a real star as the bored heiress in Hitchcock's comedy-thriller The Lady Vanishes (1938). This brought her to Hollywood's attention. But after two unsuccessful films there in 1939, she returned home for good to become the greatest British star of the 1940s, starting with Reed's The Stars Look Down as the upper-middle-class wife of working-class Michael Redgrave.
This unsympathetic role was the first of numerous seductive femmes fatales, mostly with James Mason, Phyllis Calvert, Stewart Granger and Patricia Roc. The most famous was her Lady Barbara Skelton, the aristocrat moonlighting as an 18th-century highwayman in The Wicked Lady (1945). She caused problems for the Hollywood Production Code with her provocative cleavage. A 1948 editorial in the polemical magazine Sequence, co-edited by Lindsay Anderson, sarcastically noted: 'Mr Harold Wilson was recently recorded ... presenting Miss Margaret Lockwood with a heavy, silver-plated ornament, thus bestowing official sanction on to the British people's judgment that Miss Lockwood is their finest actress. Indeed, as Mr Wilson smilingly remarked, this comes to the same thing as saying: "The finest actress in the world."'
Her film career went downhill following her appeal to J Arthur Rank that she was 'sick of sinning'. She refused the title role in Forever Amber but sunnier parts proved unpopular, especially her jolly Nell Gwynne in Cardboard Cavalier. Joining the company run by Herbert Wilcox, husband of her rival, Anna Neagle, she fared no better, and gave up films to enjoy much success in the theatre (she was an excellent Eliza in Pygmalion) and on TV. She made an impressive comeback as a barmaid in Lewis Gilbert's Cast a Dark Shadow (1955), and after an absence of 20 years played the evil stepmother in Bryan Forbes's The Slipper and the Rose (1976). Her reclusive life was interrupted by a visit to Buckingham Palace on being made a CBE in 1980.
Lockwood on refusing a reconciliation with her mother: 'I would never stick my head in that noose again.'
Motherhood: She christened her only child Julia (future actress Julia Lockwood) because she was born by Caesarian section.
A special adornment: In the beguiling supernatural movie A Place of One's Own (1944), a beauty spot was painted on her left cheek. By public demand it was constantly restored thereafter.
