  • A member of the fine British contingent imported to Hollywood in 1933 to re-create Noel Coward's Cavalcade for the Fox cameras, Irene Browne went on to play very English matrons in such films as Peg o' My Heart (1933) and Berkeley Square (1933). A highly respected West End actress who had made her debut opposite H.B. Irving in Robert Macaire in 1910 and starred in such productions as No, No, Nanette (1925) and Cavalcade, Browne returned to Great Britain in 1933, where in addition to scores of stage roles she played the Duchess in Pygmalion (1938) and Lady Bland in Quartet (1949).

QUOTES FROM Irene Browne CHARACTERS

Count Aristid Karpathy
Because Doolittle is an English name and she is not English.
Prof. Henry Higgins
Oh.
Duchess
But she speaks it perfectly.
Count Aristid Karpathy
Too perfectly. Can you show me any Englishwoman who speaks English as it should be spoken, there is no such thing. The English do not now how to speak their own language, only foreigners who have been taught to speak it speak it well.
Prof. Henry Higgins
Yes, there's something in that.
