Character actress, Eleanor Summerfield, was born on Mar 7, 1921 in London, UK. Summerfield died at the age of 80 on Jul 13, 2001 in London, UK .
Blonde, blue-eyed British actress Eleanor Summerfield had 'shopgirl' looks. After winning a Gold Medal at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, she began her film career in straight roles, sometimes minor leads. It soon became evident, however, that her personality was more suited to bright and chatty comedy roles, and she was often 'the woman you couldn't get away from.' A vivacious real-life personality, she was popular for years on radio panel games, especially BBC Radio 4's "Many a Slip" (1964-1979). She was married to actor Leonard Sachs from 1947 to his death in 1990.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
