She's the Mother of the Magpie Presenter, Jenny Hanley - What a Woman!

Born September 17, 1920 - Hampstead Garden Suburb, England.

Trained at Italia Conti School, Dinah Sheridan was 12 when she received her first paying theatrical job as understudy for the juvenile lead in Where the Rainbow Ends. In 1936, 15-year-old Dinah was cast as the ingenue in the breezy film programmer Irish and Proud of It. Except for the two years spent in repertory in the early 1940s, she remained essentially a movie actress for the next three decades. Most fans regard Dinah's portrayal of Wendy McKim in the whimsical 1953 hit Genevieve as her best film work; it was also her last starring role for many years. Temporarily retiring from the screen in 1967 to concentrate on her family and to revitalize her stage career, Sheridan returned before the cameras in character parts in the early 1970s. More recently, she starred on the British TV series All Night Long and Don't Wait Up. Once married to actor Jimmy Hanley--a union that produced a daughter, actress Jenny Hanley, and a production company, Sheridan-Hanley Entertainment Ltd.--Dinah Sheridan is the widow of J. Arthur Rank chairman Sir John Davis.

It was announced that Dinah Sheridan, the last link to the classic Genevieve, died yesterday at the age of 92.

Born Dinah Mec in London to a German mother and Russian father in 1920, she picked the name Sheridan out of the phone book and landed her first film role at the age of 15. With Jimmy Hanley, the first of her four husbands, she had three children: former Tory MP and party chairman Sir Jeremy Hanley, Jenny Hanley as mentioned, and another daughter, born in 1944, who lived for just three days.

Miss Sheridan died at her home in Northwood, North West London, yesterday surrounded by her family.
