From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Pamela Mary Brown (July 8, 1917 - September 18, 1975) was an English stage and film actress, born in London, England, U.K..

After attending RADA, she made her stage debut in 1936 as Juliet in a Stratford-upon-Avon production of Romeo and Juliet. Three of her early film roles were in Powell & Pressburger films: her first screen part in One of our Aircraft is Missing (1942), a memorable supporting role in I Know Where I'm Going! (1945), and in the fantasy film-ballet The Tales of Hoffmann (1951).

Her success in film continued with Laurence Olivier's Richard III (1955) and opposite Kirk Douglas in the Van Gogh biopic Lust for Life (1956). Highlights of her 1960s work include the epic Cleopatra (movie) (1963), Becket (1964) and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1966).

In 1959 she divorced her husband Peter Copley. She would later live with Michael Powell, the director who had given her her early film roles. They were together until her death from cancer in 1975.
