Biography

Daughter of George Alfred Absalom,[4] Clare was educated at Wood Green secondary school, first worked in an office but a loan of £50 allowed her to train at a dramatic school and she began her thespian career on the London stage at the age of 18 in 1910,[5] following which she spent two years touring the provinces to appear back in London in "A Posy on a Ring" at the Earl's Court Exhibition Theatre. She made her London West End debut in Turandot at the St James's Theatre in 1913, following which she appeared in many West End productions.[citation needed]

In the theatre, she became one of Noël Coward's "leading ladies" appearing in several of his plays, in particular, Cavalcade in 1931. In September 1936 she played the leading role in the play Laura Garnett, by Leslie and Sewell Stokes, at the Arts Theatre Club, London and played the lead role of the victim in Agatha Christie's 1945 play Appointment with Death. In 1960, she appeared in Noël Coward's 50th play Waiting in the Wings with Sybil Thorndike.[citation needed]

In films, she was mainly a character actress, in later life often portraying mature ladies who had strength of character or were autocratic. She appeared in several silent films including the film The Black Spider in 1920, and thereafter divided her time between the stage and the cinema. In April 1927, she appeared in Packing Up, a short film produced in the DeForest Phonofilm sound-on-film process; the short featured Malcolm Keen and was directed by Miles Mander. Her first major sound film was in the 1931 Hindle Wakes, as Mrs Jeffcote; a role which she was to repeat in the 1952 remake.

In 1938, she was featured opposite Robert Donat and Rosalind Russell in The Citadel. She appeared in two of the British-made Alfred Hitchcock films, Young and Innocent, (1937) playing a nightmare of an aunt who demands that everyone enjoy themselves at her young daughter's birthday party, and The Lady Vanishes, (1938) in which she played a sinister baroness; two vastly different characters. She played the part of Linda Sanger in two different versions of The Constant Nymph and had previously been in the stage version.[citation needed]

Whilst Mary Clare played many leading roles, her only "title" role was as the very eccentric detective Palmyra Pym in the 1940 film Mrs. Pym of Scotland Yard that also featured Nigel Patrick and Irene Handl.[citation needed]

In 1956, she was in several TV episodes in British television.[citation needed]

Personal life

Clare lived at Brunswick Square, Bloomsbury.[6][7] In 1915, she married Lieutenant Lionel Percival Mawhood,[8][9] of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers; they had a son and a daughter.[10][11][12] Their son, RAF Wing Commander David Vere George Mawhood, OBE, married Margaret Mary St John, a descendant of John St John, 11th Baron St John of Bletso.[13] Daughter Rozanne was educated at RADA,[14] and acted on stage before the Second World War as Anne Clare.[15]
