Eily Malyon Overview:

Character actress, Eily Malyon, was born Eily S. Lees-Craston on Oct 30, 1879 in London, UK. Malyon died at the age of 81 on Sep 26, 1961 in South Pasadena, CA .


Eily Malyon was a fair-haired, gloomy-looking British stage actress with strong features who came to Hollywood in the early 1930s. Her almost weather-beaten face and sharp delivery qualified her for severe, sour, be-stern-with-the-children roles. She was still glooming about as Mrs. Sketcher in 1943's "Jane Eyre" and only retired at age 70.

Richard Myles: [embarrassed] Huh?
Walmer Hotel proprietor: There's a practice blackout tonight.

Miss Piper, the Governess: As women, the first thing of importance is to be content to be inferior to men, inferior in mental power in the same proportion that she is in physical strength. A really sensible woman feels her dependence. She's conscious of her inferiority and therefore grateful for her thought.
