Hattie Jacques' portrait

Hattie Jacques (1924-1980) appeared in many British films from the 1940s to the 1970s, notably the "Carry On" series of comedies. While appearance in comedy may not always be a victory for size-acceptance, Hattie's roles were often very positive, playing intelligent and desirable characters.

The portraits here illustrate some of her best film roles. Firstly, as a blonde opera singer in the 1958 Norman Wisdom film "The Square Peg". Secondly, as Peggy in the 1963 film "Carry On Cabbie". Thirdly, in the 1967 film "Carry On Doctor".

She was one of most beautiful big ladies of the big screen, and is sadly missed.
