Elsie Randolph

Who is she? Where does she fit in? Why have I just acquired this picture of her? (right)

Elsie Randolph
was a singer and actress with real charm and style. She had a lasting stage, screen and recording partnership with Jack Buchanan, and did some marvellous duets with him on disc. Get The ASV cd "Elegance" and see what I mean.

She appeared in two Alfred Hitchcock movies, Rich and Strange and Frenzy (though the two movies are over forty years apart)

It is interesting to me to have a little piece of the past; a fragment of a moment when a bright star autographed a glossy photograph for a starry eyed admirer.
