British stage actress Pamela Brown's film appearances were sporadic but memorable; she was often cast in haughty or eccentric roles. Her notable features include impressive sloe eyes, pointy chin, a come-hither smile, and a deep resonant voice. Brown studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, then made her stage debut as Juliet in Romeo and Juliet at Stratford-on-Avon in 1936, when she was 19. She played a large variety of roles for the Old Vic and made her highly successful Broadway debut in 1947 in Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest. Brown debuted onscreen in One of Our Aircraft is Missing (1942) and made on-and-off appearances in films until 1973's Lady Caroline Lamb. She won an Emmy for her work in Victoria Regina on American TV.
