Heather Angel - Rotten Tomatoes

Heather Angel



The daughter of an Oxford chemistry professor, flowerlike British leading lady Heather Angel was trained at the London Polytechnic of Dramatic Arts. She made her professional debut at age 17, spending several years with the Old Vic. Her first film was the British City of Song (1931). In 1933, she was signed to a Hollywood contract by Fox Studios, appearing in a handful of quality productions like Berkeley Square, but soon becoming a mainstay of "B" pictures. Heather starred in five "Bulldog Drummond" programmers of the 1930s, playing Drummond's girl friend, the eternally left-at-the-altar Phyllis Clavering. Virtually always a brunette on screen, Heather donned a blonde wig to play Cora Munro in Last of the Mohicans (1936), while blonde co-star Binnie Barnes played the raven-haired Alice Munro. During the 1940s, Heather showed up in small parts in several "A" productions; she was the prologue girl in Kitty Foyle (1940), a maid in Suspicion (1941), and the near-comatose woman with the dead baby in Lifeboat (1944) (the latter two films were directed by Alfred Hitchcock). She provided voices for two Disney feature-length cartoons, 1951's Alice in Wonderland (as Alice's sister) and 1953's Peter Pan (as Mrs. Darling). On television, Ms. Angel appeared regularly on the TV series Peyton Place and Family Affair. Heather Angel was married, three times, to actors Ralph Forbes and Henry Wilcoxon, and to director Robert B. Sinclair.
