Netflix Movies Starring Isabel Jeans

Stately Isabel Jeans was brought to Hollywood by the director Anatole Litvak to appear as Fermonde Dupond in his comedy Tovarich (1937). The daughter of an art critic, Frederick George Jeans, she had aspired to be a singer but instead forged a career on the stage. Her first role came courtesy of theatre legend Herbert Beerbohm Tree when she was fifteen years old. Isabel went on to acquire a varied repertoire in the classics, as well as displaying a singular comic talent in contemporary works by Noël Coward, Ivor Novello, and others. By the late 1920's, she had become a fixture on the London stage, toured the United States, appeared with great success on Broadway and acted in two early films by Alfred Hitchcock: When Boys Leave Home (1927) and Easy Virtue (1928). She had been married, thrice separated and eventually divorced from actor Claude Rains, having seemingly relished the role of the philandering wife. Read more on iMDB
