    (December 9, 1897-May 24, 1987)
    Born in London, United Kingdom
    Appeared in the films 'The Pickwick Papers' (1953), 'Around the World in 80 Days' (1956), 'Gigi' (1958), 'Bell, Book and Candle' (1958), 'The Music Man' (1962), 'Munster, Go Home!' (1966) and 'Garbo Talks' (1984)
    Appeared on Broadway in 'A Little Night Music' (1973)
    Wrote the autobiography 'How to Grow Old Disgracefully' (published posthumously, 1988)
    She started as a soprano, but her voice deepened because of throat nodules she never had treated.
    Her unruly hair was described as having been styled by sticking her head out the window and letting the wind sculpt it.
    She was divorced twice.
    She ruefully observed about her early desire to play in Hamlet, 'The trouble with me is I'm not considered an actress anymore. I'm a celebrity.'
    Playwright Alan Melville said, 'An author lucky enough to write for Hermione knows that however good a line he might give her, some unexpected bonus will be added to make it sound better.'
    She was a popular talk show raconteur, particularly as an 'irregular regular' on 'The Tonight Show' with Jack Paar.
    She won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress (1958) and a Grammy for Best Album for Children (1977).
    She died of complications from a fall at a railway station while touring in 'Side by Side by Sondheim.'
