Heather Thatcher Overview:

Character actress, Heather Thatcher, was born Heather Mary Thatcher on Sep 3, 1896 in London, England. Thatcher died at the age of 90 on Feb 15, 1987 in Hillingdon, England .


Heather Thatcher was a sparkling British musical comedy star of the theater who had a sporadic career in home grown features. She went to Hollywood in the 1930s and came into demand for eccentric characterizations that were lent strength and animation by her off-centre features and stylish delivery. She returned to Britain in the late 1940s to round out her career with a few sharply witty character roles.

Lady Joan Culver: No, not exactly. But it gets about. If you see a lot of women looking particularly radiant - somebody's been around.
