Hillary Brooke was an actress from the 1930s to the 1950s. She was a beautiful tall blonde with a classy look, and early in her career, she adopted an English accent, and she became so typecast that she needed to keep using it throughout the rest of her career! She started out in straight dramatic movies including Big Town and its sequels, but in the mid-1940s, she was cast in some comedies with legends like Bob Hope, and she became a sort of "straight woman" to those comics. In the early 1950s, she had important roles in two TV series. She was the girlfriend of Gale Storm's father Charles Farrell in "My Little Margie", and bizarrely, she was Lou Costello's sort of girlfriend in "The Abbott & Costello Show". She passed away in 1999 at the age of 84.
