Filmed in California in black and white and from 1953, Angel Face ticks the golden age of Hollywood box

Released in 1953, black and white and filmed on location in Beverley Hills, Angel Face certainly ticks the golden age of Hollywood box.

Starring Robert Mitchum and Jean Simmons, it had a budget of just over $1 million.

Simmons was born in London and, like so many actors and actresses from the time, moved to California to pursue her career.

Most of them lived out their lives on America’s west coast but in her case, although she died in Santa Monica, she is buried in Highgate Cemetery, London.
