Biography

Delicately pretty leading lady and supporting player of the 1930s and 40s. Angel began making films in her native Great Britain and initially made a good impression in the gentle romanticism of "Berkeley Square" and in John Ford's moving "Pilgrimage" (both 1933). Many of her more important films, though, did not necessarily highlight her character or gave her somewhat ordinary leads to work with. Angel primarily enjoyed larger roles in programmers and B films, among them a number of "Bulldog Drummond" mysteries of the late 30s, and played supporting roles in larger budget films. She played the youngest of the marriageable Bennet sisters in "Pride and Prejudice" (1940) and other notable credits included Ford's "The Informer" (1935), "The Last of the Mohicans" (1936) and Alfred Hitchcock's "Suspicion" (1941). Angel was also memorable as one of those lost at sea in Hitchcock's "Lifeboat" (1943). She lived quietly in her later years, working very occasionally, and unfortunately lived to see her third husband fatally stabbed by a prowler.
