#Quote
1[about her roles in the early 1950s] It's very funny. In those days we did it all as a job. it was our job to go out and do the very bet we could. We'd take each film as it came, analyze it, work on it, and do it. Never any tantrums . . . You enjoyed doing it, and you didn't ever think of yourself as special. We were all just actors, together; we were glad of a job, and we did it.
2[on The Man Who Could Cheat Death (1959)] The producers just said, WWe would like you to do this scene, where Anton Diffring is sculpting you, and we would like to make it a nude scene. Would you do it?" It would only be shown in the European version, not in England. It really was just a lovely scene with him sculpting me, and I had no objection to that. But that nude scene is in the European version--out there, somewhere!
3I always thought [Edgar Allan Poe's] work were wonderful, and I loved Gothic tales--so I guess I was a natural for those films-to-come . . . I used to stand in line with my parents at the local theater.
4Just in case I should pop off to heaven in the night, I always remember to wash up, punch up the cushions and straighten up after a dinner party. I wouldn't want everyone to come in and find it a mess. It's very English of me.
#Fact
1In her last years she was strongly critical of the increase of sex, violence, gore and bad language in films, singling out the films of Quentin Tarantino for special dislike.
2Her daughter Sally Walsh played the younger version of her character Elizabeth in The Curse of Frankenstein (1957).
3She and her second husband Don Taylor both appeared in Hammer films made during the 1950s. She appeared in The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) and The Man Who Could Cheat Death (1959) while Taylor appeared in The Men of Sherwood Forest (1954).
4Upon her death she was cremated and her ashes scattered at sea.
5One of Court's biggest fans was writer Stephen King who mentions her in his various novels.
6According to friend Ingrid Pitt, Court was Hammer Films' first major star.
7While she had a substantial acting career both in England and on American TV, Court was perhaps best known for her work in such films as 1963's The Raven (1963). She co-starred with Vincent Price, Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre in a Roger Corman take on the classic Edgar Allan Poe poem. Like other "scream queens" of the era, Court's roles often relied on her cleavage and her ability to shriek in fear and die horrible deaths. Premature Burial (1962), The Masque of the Red Death (1964), The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) and Devil Girl from Mars (1954) helped propel her to cult status and brought her fan mail, even in her later years. Court had finished an autobiography, "Hazel Court - Horror Queen", which will be published in Britain, said her daughter, Sally Walsh.
8Daughter of a professional cricket player.
9Had three children: Sally Walsh, Courtney Taylor and Jonathan Taylor.
10As a teenager she was appearing on the stage when she was spotted and signed by the J. Arthur Rank Organization.
11Following husband Don Taylor's death in 1998, she would still appear on the cult movie conventions circuit.
12Her "horror queen" popularity officially started with her role as Elizabeth in The Curse of Frankenstein (1957). Real-life daughter Sally Walsh played Elizabeth as a child.
13Twice in her career, Hazel Court played women whose bucolic vacations were interrupted by unfriendly space aliens, first in the feature film Devil Girl from Mars (1954) and, a decade later, in The Twilight Zone (1959) episode, The Twilight Zone: The Fear (1964), (05-29-64)).
