• Wendy Hiller

A white postcard signed with a blue biro by Wendy Hiller (1912-2003), the English film and theatre actress, who enjoyed a varied acting career that spanned nearly sixty years. Despite many notable film performances, including an Oscar for Seperate Tables (1958) and sevaral other nominations for awards, she chose to remain primarily a stage actress. Her 1939 Oscar nomination (for her role as Eliza Doolittle in Pygmalion (1938) with Leslie Howard as Professor Higgins) marked the first time a British actress in a British film had been nominated for an Academy Award. She was also the first actress to utter the word "bloody" in a British film, when Eliza utters the line "Not bloody likely, I'm going in a taxi!".
