Kathleen Harrison
Kathleen Harrison was long a stalwart of British cinema.   Her place was
always firmly below stairs – a cook perhaps, or a cleaning lady often
answering the door with a puzzled expression always fearful that trouble
was just around the corner.   She was born in 1892 in Blackburn in
Lancashire.   She studied at RADA and then went to live in Agentina for
some time.   On her return to Britain, she made her stage debut in 1926
in “The Constant Flirt”.   Her first major film role was in 1931 in
“Hobson’s Choice”.   Kathleen Harrison made one film in Hollywood in
Emlyn Williams “Night Must Fall” in 1937 as a maid (naturally).   She
achieved national fame as Mrs Huggett in four films about the Huggett
family.   In the mid 1960′s she starred in a very popular television
series Mrs Thursday about a cleaner who won the football pools.   She
died in 1995 at the age of 103.
