    Just been watching For them that Tresspass(1949) this afternoon which starred, among others Patricia Plunkett. I remembered her as the female lead in Landfall (also 1949) - a film which, I am delighted to see, gets a commercial release in 2010. BUT I can find little or no biographical information about Miss Plunkett - can anyone help please?

    Not much, I'm afraid. Patricia was born in Streatham, London on December 17th 1926. She married the stage and screen actor Tim Turner on October 27th 1951. They lived for a time in Dulwich Village and both quit acting in the early '60s. Pat died in St. Stephen's Hospital, Chelsea on October 13th 1974.



    Tim is still alive - there is a little about him here:

    Patricia was educated at St. Martins-in-the-Fields High School. She studied at RADA and made her stage debut in 1947. Her parents were Captain Gunning Francis Plunkett and Alice (nee Park).

    Having just watched The Crowded Day (1954) and it being a wet and cold sort of day I googled the cast and found this lovely link about Pat from her sister Lorraine Greenslade in 2008. Focusing on her early career she doesn't mention what she did after her film career came to a close.

    Read it on page 12.
