Una O'Connor was a twittering, pinch-featured, Irish actress with a pale complexion, darting eyes and birdlike movements. She started in British films after an early career with the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, then moved to Hollywood to recreate her stage role as Ellen Bridges in Cavalcade. She was soon launched into a succession of maids, crones, chaperones and nagging wives, mostly less warm-hearted versions of characters played in Britain by Kathleen Harrison.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
