Biography by Hal Erickson

Her early career studio-guided by the Rank Organisation's charm school, British actress Jane Hylton graduated from her "ingenue" period early on. Discounting inconsequential roles in such programmers as Girl in a Million (1947) and Here Come the Huggetts (1949), Hylton distinguished herself with excellent performances in Passport to Pimlico (1950), Dance Hall (1950), It Started in Paradise (1952) and The Weak and the Wicked (1953). But Jane's suffering screen character began to wear on '50s audiences who wanted light entertainment, thus by 1956 she was available to play Queen Guinevere on the popular TV series Sir Lancelot. Jane Hylton's final film appearances were in such '70s productions as The Wild Geese (1978).
