Brenda De Banzie - Rotten Tomatoes

Brenda De Banzie



British leading lady Brenda DeBanzie made her stage bow in 1935. She chose not to appear in films until she was well into her thirties; her first movie assignment was the psychological melodrama The Long Dark Hall (1951). Brenda's biggest film success was as Charles Laughton's industrious daughter in director David Lean's Hobson's Choice (1954). Her best-known role was Phoebe Rice, the long-suffering wife of third-rate music hall comedian Archie Rice (played by Laurence Olivier) in both the 1957 stage production and the 1960 film version of John Osborne's The Entertainer. Brenda DeBanzie was the aunt of actress Lois DeBanzie.
