Jolly-looking Hermione Baddeley could be both sophisticated and blowzy. After a long stage career, she contributed a rich range of characters to the screen, most of them 'below stairs' but some of which, like the vengeful Ida in Brighton Rock, she turned memorably into semi-leads. She is the younger sister of actress Angela Baddeley. Hermione was nominated for an Oscar in Room at the Top.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
