Catherine Lacey - Rotten Tomatoes

Catherine Lacey



British actress Catherine Lacey was an established stage character player before she was 30. Most of her film roles found her as either a neurotic or eccentric, usually playing a spinster or reprimanding spouse. One can only suppose that Ms. Lacey was happier with roles in major films like I Know Where I'm Going (1947), The October Man (1947) and The Fighting Prince of Donegal (1966) (where she played Queen Elizabeth I) than she was in her horror stint opposite Boris Karloff in The Sorcerers (1969), in which she and Boris wound up burnt to a crisp as a result of their villainy. Catherine Lacey was at her most memorable in her first film, Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes (1938), as the secretive nun who wears high heels.
