Anderson, Dame Judith,

1898–1992, British actress, b. Adelaide, S. Australia, originally named Frances Margaret Anderson. She made her debut in Sydney in 1915 and by 1924 had become celebrated for her portrayals of classical and modern roles. In 1937 she made her London debut in Macbeth with Laurence Olivier. The title role in Medea by Robinson Jeffers, which she played in 1947 and 1982, was a personal triumph. Anderson's notable films were Rebecca (1940), Laura (1944), and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958). Her later films include A Man Called Horse (1970) and Star Trek III (1984). She was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1960.
