Elizabeth Allan (9 April 1908 - 27 July 1990) was an English actress who worked in both England and Hollywood, making about 50 films over more than a quarter century. She was born at Skegness in Lincolnshire, England. In 1931 first appeared in film, in The Rosary, second-billed behind another actress. She appeared in a further six films that year. In 1932 she joined Wilfred J. O'Bryen in a marriage that lasted until his death in 1977. Her first US/UK co-production and first US production came in 1933. She worked under contract with MGM until 1938, and returned to Britain after that. Her best remembered roles were Lucie Manette in A Tale of Two Cities with Ronald Coleman, Irena in Mark of the Vampire with Bela Lugosi and Clara Copperfield in David Copperfield, all in 1935. Late in her career, she was a frequent panelist on television game shows, including the British version of What's My Line?. In the 1950's she made her last nine films, culminating in The Haunted Strangler in 1958, starring Boris Karloff. Allan died at Hove in East Sussex.
