Today, we read that British film and stage actress Nova Pilbeam died at 17 July. She was a forgotten star with an odd name. As a teenager, she played in two Alfred Hitchcock classics, The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934) and Young and Innocent (1937). In 1948 she vanished from the British cinema. Nova Pilbeam was 95.
