• Ann Todd

A page from an autograph album signed by Ann Todd (1909-1993), the English actress known as the "pocket Garbo" for her diminutive, blond beauty. She became a popular actress from appearing in such films as Perfect Strangers (1945) (as a nurse) and The Seventh Veil (1945) (as a troubled concert pianist). She is perhaps best known to American audiences as Gregory Peck's long-suffering wife in Alfred Hitchcock's The Paradine Case (1947). She married director David Lean in 1949 and starred in a number of his films, including The Passionate Friends (1949), Madeleine (1950) and The Sound Barrier (1952). Her autobiography is entitled The Eighth Veil, an allusion to the film which made her a star in Britain.
