Letter: Faith Brook obituary

25 March 2012 10:06 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The obituary of Faith Brook reminded me of an episode during the second world war. I was in the Ats, stationed in Oxford, and Faith was with Stars in Battledress, working in the same area. One day, she was brought to our unit to face the commanding officer on a charge of burning her uniform skirt. I was appointed to be her escort, as I was of the same rank. We had a chance to talk before being marched in to hear the charges, and I found her delightfully friendly, relaxed and cheerful. At the hearing she freely admitted to being careless; she had not checked the heat of the iron, and so ruined the skirt. The outcome was that she was fined the cost of the garment, the money to be deducted from her pay.

What could have been a serious, intimidating experience was relieved by Faith's charm and sense of humour. »

Actor of poise and beauty who enjoyed a rich and productive career on both sides of the Atlantic

Faith Brook, who has died aged 90, was an actor of remarkable elegance, poise and beauty. She was the daughter of Clive Brook, a pillar of the so-called Hollywood Raj, the British acting community that settled in Los Angeles in the 1930s. He appeared opposite Marlene Dietrich in Shanghai Express. Even if she was never a star on the scale of her father, Faith enjoyed a rich and productive career in theatre, film and television on both sides of the Atlantic.

She was born in York and moved with Clive and her mother, Mildred, to California, where her father had already put down roots. Her brother, Lyndon, was born four years after Faith and also became a successful actor.

She was educated in Los Angeles, London and Gstaad, Switzerland. She made her stage »
