Isabel Jeans (1891 - 1985). She had a successful career on screen and stage, and was once married to Claude Rains (1913 - 1920), but by this point she'd just hit forty and the roles were thinning out. She went to Hollywood in the mid-thirties for supporting roles mainly in undistinguished films and thereafter divided her time between there and here. Among her better films were Tovarich, Gigi and Suspicion (her third Hitchcock film). Her last screen appearance was as Lord Peter Wimsey's mother in the TV adaptation of Clouds of Witness in the early 70s.
