Personal Quote:

I've heard people who've worked with Alfred Hitchcock say that it was not the most exhilarating experience, and, though I was only about fifteen, I felt something of that. Hitch had everything in his head before he went near the set: therefore one was rather moved around and manipulated, but, having said that, I liked him very much.

Trivia:

Completely retired shortly after her marriage to second husband, BBC radio journalist Alexander Whyte, in 1950. They had one daughter, Sarah Jane, born in July of 1952. See more »
