Heather Angel

Heather Angel was an English actress whose film appearances were primarily in the 1930s and 1940s. She appeared in movies in England and the United States.

Some of her most memorable roles were in "The Hound of the Baskervilles" (1932), "Mystery of Edwin Drood" (1935), "It Happened in New York" (1935), "The Last of the Mohicans" (1936), and in a few entries of the "Bulldog Drummond" series. Later she did voice work for Walt Disney animated features, most notably "Alice in Wonderland" (1951) and "Peter Pan" (1953). In the 1960s she appeared on several tv shows, including "Peyton Place" and "Family Affair".

In the early 1980s, I sent a vintage portrait photo to Miss Angel, to her residence in Santa Barbara, California, and she signed and returned it within two weeks. It can be viewed here.

Thank you for sharing this. Her voice can also be heard on the Disney "Story & Songs from Peter Pan" record, though I believe every instance of it was taken from the film.
