    She mothered two children out of wedlock with producer Patrick Filmer-Sankey.

    In ‘Dr. Zhivago,’ she portrayed Julie Christie’s mother despite being only ten years older.
    She noted about working with Kubrick, ‘I used to get his name wrong – I called him Sidney. That used to drive him mad.’
    A movie magazine wrote that she ‘had no nice-little-girl-next-door nonsense about her.’
    Before the filming of the rape scene in ‘A Clockwork Orange,’ she told Malcolm McDowell, ‘You’re about to find out I’m a real redhead.’
    She collected 18th century art, and gained a reputation as an expert after discovering the earliest known self-portrait by Thomas Gainsborough.
