A lovely talented Lady sadly wasted by the British Film Industry
Jean Kent had everything, real acting ability, a lovely singing voice, and a beautiful face and figure. Only the British Film Industry was short sighted enough not to recognise a Lady who should have been our Number one Star. She was at her best in Trottie True, and I cannot understand why she wasn't snapped up by Hollywood. Only 8 years after this film she was supporting Marilyn Monroe in The Prince and the Showgirl, and still looking ravishing. She is the last surviving Gainsborogh Girl and it is shocking that she seems to have been totally forgotten by the Industry. I saw her at the National Film Theatre in 1999 when they showed Trottie True, and she talked about her career. After the film she came out into the foyer and signed every autograph and posed for photo's, a lovely Lady and a true star.
