    The Wicked Lady



    Obituary

    Margaret Lockwood,
    the Wicked Lady, dies aged 73
    Edition 3ss,
    Monday 16th July, 1990
    By Sheridan Morley

    Margaret Lockwood, the last totally English film star to have stayed at the top of the cinema box office polls for several years in succession, died last night in the Cromwell Hospital in west London at the age of 73. Whereas the rest of her 1940s generation, from Jean Simmons and Deborah Kerr to James Mason and Stewart Granger, went to seek international fame in Hollywood, Miss Lockwood maintained a totally local kind of stardom that nevertheless altered radically over the decades.

    Born Margaret Day in India (1917 was the date she usually gave, though some reports put it as early as 1911) she started in films with ingenue roles in the middle 1930s, notably Lorna Doone and Beloved Vagabond, before she was taken up by Hitchcock for the classic 1938 thriller The Lady Vanishes, in which she played opposite Michael Redgrave.

    The Lady Vanishes made Lockwood a star and took her almost immediately to Hollywood. She was there for less than a year and only two movies, from which she returned to some very much better wartime work in England, notably in another train thriller Night Train to Munich, The Stars Look Down and Quiet Wedding.

    But it was in 1943 with The Man in Grey that she, Phyllis Calvert, Stewart Granger and James Mason formed themselves into the quartet of Gainsborough stars most often to be found through the rest of the war years in a succession of snobbery-with-violence pictures, usually involving period costumes and a good horsewhipping. Lockwood would end up in these bruised by James Mason (The Wicked Lady, probably her best-known film).

    As Granger and Mason moved on to sunnier Californian contracts, Lockwood's career went into roughly the same decline as the English cinema itself, before finishing up in Bryan Forbes's The Slipper and the Rose, her last big screen appearance in 1976.

    In the meantime, however, she had begun to carve out a new career in the theatre. She played Peter Pan for three seasons and had a long Savoy run in the thriller Spider's Web. She also had three long-running television serials, notably Justice.

    She was married once (to Rupert Leon), divorcing 40 years ago, and leaves a daughter, the actress Julia Lockwood.

    Phyllis Calvert said last night: "Over the last ten years she lived quite like a hermit. As a young actress, though, she was very gay but very serious about her work."
