One of British filmdom's most beloved interpreters of cockneys and eccentrics, pleasantly plump Irene Handl didn't begin her acting career until she was approaching middle age. For nearly five decades, Handl delighted her fans in a multitude of plays, films, and TV series. Her first movie was 1937's Believed Married, and her last was 1980's Hound of the Baskervilles; in between, she sparkled in such productions as Millions Like Us (1943), Great Day (1946), Adam and Evelyne (1949), Meet Mr. Lucifer (1953), Brothers in Law (1958) and Next to No Time (1960). She even found time to write two popular novels. On British television, Irene Handl starred in the weekly efforts For Love of Amy (1970-72) and Maggie and Her (1978-79).
