Deborah Kerr RIP

Most commentators talking about Deborah Kerr, who died yesterday aged 86, have tended to focus on her roles opposite Yul Brunner in The King And I, Cary Grant in An Affair To Remember, and that clinch on the beach in Burt Lancaster in From Here To Eternity. They may be her most famous, but for me, Kerr's best and most memorable performances were in Powell and Pressburger's The Life And Death Of Colonel Blimp (in which she had three roles) and Black Narcissus, as well as in Jack Clayton's The Innocents.
