Andree Melly


Born - 15 September 1932, Liverpool, Lancashire, England
Died - 31 January 2020

Dark-haired, dark-eyed, coquettish English actress, in semi-leading roles throughout the 1950s before concentrating on the theatre and TV. Her French-sounding name (she was actually born in Liverpool, the sister of jazz musician George Melly) often saw her cast as vampish maids and the like, although she was also Tony Hancock's radio girlfriend in two series of his iconic Hancock's Half Hour. She played a Belgian girl in her film debut in So Little Time (1952), subsequent screen appearances coming in The Belles of St Trinian's (1954), Secret Tent (1956), The Passionate Stranger (1957), Nowhere to Go (1958), Dangerous Ice (1959), Beyond the Curtain (1960) and The Brides of Dracula (1960). Later, more sporadic, appearances came in The Horror of It All (1963), The Boy With a Flute (1964) and The Best of Benny Hill (1974), her last. She married actor Oscar Quitak (born 1926), who survives her.
