      Highest Rated: 100% That Hamilton Woman (1941)

      Lowest Rated: 50% The Happiest Millionaire (1967)

      Birthday: Dec 18, 1888

      Birthplace: Lewisham, London, England, UK

      The grand dame of English theater and a prolific screen actress, Gladys Cooper was one of the most revered performers of her generation. She began appearing as a photographic model as a child, and after her stage career began she became a popular pin-up postcard model for British troops during World War I. Her first film appearance was in the silent feature "The Eleventh Commandment" in 1913, but she continued acting on stage, earning notice for work in plays such as Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" in 1938 at the Open Air Theatre. Her first important film role was in Alfred Hitchcock's "Rebecca," and she had a supporting role in Alexander Korda's classic romance "That Hamilton Woman." One of her most famous roles came in 1942 when she played the mother of Bette Davis's character in the psychological drama "Now, Voyager"; both she and Davis earned Oscar nominations for their roles. Cooper remained a busy actress throughout the rest of the '40s and '50s and earned another Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for her work in the historical drama "The Song of Bernadette." When the golden age of TV began, Cooper found steady work in classic dramatic shows like "Playhouse 90" and "Twilight Zone," appearing in three episodes of Rod Serling's sci-fi classic. Nearing the end of her career she had a starring role in the con-men sitcom "The Rogues" with co-star Charles Boyer, and played Mrs. Higgins in the film musical "My Fair Lady" earning plaudits--and awards--for both roles.
