This bio is totally incorrect. Elziabeth AllAn, with an A, was a 1920s-era British actress. Elizabeth AllEn, with an E, was born in 1929 and passed away in 1996. She was a stage, film and television actress, as well a remarkable singer and model in her early career. I should know, because I am her nephew and closest living relative. The text bio is soley of my aunt, and the photo is of the earlier actress with the same name (albeit different spelling). Get your Elizabeth Allens right people!
