Comments

Madeleine Carroll earned the princely sum of $250,000 in 1938 which, US inflation adjusted, is the equivalent of $4,452,500 in today’s terms.

At the peak of her success she was the highest-paid actress in the world and is probably best remembered for her appearances in Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps (1935) and two others, The Prisoner of Zenda (1937) and My Favourite Blonde (1942.)

She is also noted for virtually abandoning her acting career after the death of her sister Marguerite in the London Blitz, to devote herself to helping wounded servicemen and children displaced and maimed by the war.
