Merle Oberon was a ravishing and classy Anglo-Indian actress, counted among the most dazzling performers during initial phase of talkies in the British film industry. Making her debut in films as an extra she soon made her mark in British films after being spotted by producer-director Alexander Korda and she landed doing a small but significant role of Anne Boleyn in ‘The Private Life of Henry VIII’. This was followed by another successful performance as Lady Blakeney, née Marguerite St. Just in British adventure film ‘The Scarlet Pimpernel’ directed by Harold Young. Her quick success in British films made her try her hand in the US film industry where renowned Hollywood producer Samuel Goldwyn gave her several plum roles, particularly in ‘The Dark Angel’, the performance in which fetched her ‘Academy Award for Best Actress’ nomination. She met with a potentially career-ending car accident during the making of ‘I, Claudius’ that damaged her face. However good make-up combined with careful lightning aided her in hiding the imperfections and moving on she soon mesmerised the audience with her most notable performance in ‘Wuthering Heights’, a film which was selected by ‘Library of Congress’ in 2007 for preservation in the ‘National Film Registry’ of the US, as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". All through her professional life she tried to conceal her Indian origin by contriving a story of being born in Tasmania, Australia, however a year before her death she admitted falsification.
