Hillary Brooke (September 8, 1914 – May 25, 1999) was an American film actress. Though American-born, she began cultivating a sophisticated English accent to get more film parts early in her career. It eventually became second nature to her, and she was cast as a British woman in most of her films, including one that was produced in the United Kingdom.
