About

About Lilian Braithwaite

Lilian Braithwaite

LILIAN BRAITHWAITE DBE d1948. English stage actress. She made her first professional London appearance in As You Like It in 1900. She appeared in the 1927 Alfred Hitchcock film "Downhill". Her greatest triumph was as the alcoholic mother in Noel Coward's groundbreaking drama The Vortex. She proved that comedy was her greatest asset in a long succession of drawing-room dramas and light comedies, culminating in the long running Arsenic and Old Lace (1942-46). She once responded to the assertion of critic James Agate that she was "the second most beautiful woman in London", by replying, "I shall long cherish that, coming from our second-best theatre critic". She became a Dame of The British Empire in January 1943. She died aged 75 in 1948.
