Janette Scott. TCM Overview
She is the daughter of actors Jimmy Scott and Thora Hird. She started her acting career as a child actress known as Janette Scott, and was briefly (along with Jennifer Gay) one of the so-called “Children’s Announcers” providing continuity links for the BBC‘s children’s TV programmes from the Lime Grove Studios in the early 1950s.
She became a popular leading lady, one of her best known roles being April Smith in the 1960 film School for Scoundrels, based on the “One-upmanship” books by Stephen Potter, in which Ian Carmichael and Terry-Thomas
competed for her attention. Scott wrote her autobiography at the age of 14.
