Cathleen Nesbitt

  1. Fay Bainter, The Children’s Hour, 1960.      With (slightly) less censorship, veteran US director William Wyler re-made his These Three version of Lilian Hellman’s play about lesbian lovers. Miriam Hopkins, who had played the Shirley MacLaine role in 1936, happily returned as her own aunt, but Merle Oberon, replayed by Audrey Hepburn, refused to be Mrs Amelia Tilford. So did Nesbitt, London’s West End stage star.
