Margaret Lockwood was one of Britain’s biggest 1940s film stars. She was best known for her roles in The Lady Vanishes (1938) and The Wicked Lady (1945) but also enjoyed a successful stage and television career.
Today, she was commemorated with a blue plaque at her childhood home, 14 Highland Road in Upper Norwood.
It was a great day!
The star’s great granddaughter Martha Clark unveiled the plaque.
As a distant relative, Margaret Lockwood was my grandfather's first cousin, it was great to meet some 'family' members.
The unveiling was followed by a screening of The Lady Vanishes (Hitchcock, 1938) at the Everyman Crystal Palace.
