A vintage green page from an autograph album, signed with a fountain pen on July 26th 1949 by Googie Withers, the English actress who had a lengthy career in theatre, film, and television. At her most popular during the war and post-war years, Withers was constantly in demand in lead roles in minor films and supporting roles in more prestigious productions, and in 1948 she was voted the 8th most popular British star in the country. Her best known work of the period was as one of Margaret Lockwood's friends in Alfred Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes (1938). Among her successes of the 1940s, and a departure from her previous roles, was the Powell and Pressburger film One of Our Aircraft Is Missing (1942), a topical World War II drama in which she played a Dutch resistance fighter who helps British airmen return to safety from behind enemy lines. She is remembered for her role as the devious Helen Nosseross in Night and the City (1950), a classic film noir. She was a longtime resident of Australia with her husband, the actor John McCallum, with whom she often appeared.
