Ashcroft appeared in a number of feature films, including Alfred Hitchcock's The Thirty Nine Steps (1935) and The Nun's Story (1959), as well as a number of made-for-TV movies. She was made a Dame of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II in 1956. Lightly creased and soiled. Light show through of ink border on Ashcroft's side at perimeter. Chipped at blank right edge, worn at lower left corner of verso. Rounded right corners. Overall, fine condition.
