You want an exercise in frustration? Try making finding images of Eleanor Bron’s vast historical film career online. Seriously! Try it! Imma go make myself another sazerac while you spend hours on fruitless Google searches for images of Bron in well-known historical films only to turn up empty handed of said actress in said film. So, that’s why this list looks a tad sparse, because while we’ve all seen Eleanor Bron in a bazillion different historical films, only a handful of them have pictures of her in those roles online. And quarantine or not, I’m not that dedicated to go chase down every single film she’s been in just to get screen caps. That said, Eleanor Bron is one of the most recognizable English actresses and to leave her out of Woman Crush Wednesday would be criminal.
Women in Love (1969)
A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream (1971)
The Hound of the Baskervilles (1983)
A Month in the Country (1985)

Black Beauty (1994)

Ok, here’s what I’m talking about. No pictures of our girl Eleanor are online! Have a picture of my dingus cat instead.
