Jul 28, 1890
Birth Place:
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia


On stage from the age of 11, Australia-born Marie Lohr eventually toted up more credits than any previous actress in British theatrical history. She settled into the English film industry in 1930, playing many a bejeweled grande dame. Lohr co-starred in the two major pre-war George Bernard Shaw adaptations, Pygmalion (1938; as Mrs. Higgins) and Major Barbara (1941; as Lady Britomart). Marie Lohr's postwar film characterizations included Grace Winslow in The Winslow Boy (1950) and stalwart POW Mrs. Dudley Frost in A Town Like Alice (1956). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
