35 Gorgeous Photos of Janette Scott in the 1950s and ’60s

Born 1938 in Morecambe, Lancashire, English actress Janette Scott became a popular leading lady; one of her better known roles as April Smith in the film School for Scoundrels (1960), based on the “one-upmanship” books by Stephen Potter, in which Ian Carmichael and Terry-Thomas competed for her attention.

Scott’s highest profile as a leading lady in British films was from the late 1950s to the mid-1960s, having over a dozen leading roles during this period. She was the female lead opposite some major stars of the time, including Terry-Thomas, Ian Carmichael, Ronald Lewis, Ian Hendry and George Chakiris. She proved adept in a wide variety of genres, including comedy, romantic drama, sci-fi thriller, and period adventure.

Scott is best known to American audiences for her role as the parson’s wife in the film The Devil’s Disciple (1959), starring Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas and Laurence Olivier. She wrote her autobiography Act One at the age of 14.
