“After a big dinner, George and I saw Jane Cowl in Easy Virtue at the Duke of York’s Theatre. We were the only ones on the main floor not in dress clothes. The play was great, and I enjoyed Jane Cowl’s acting exceedingly.”

Jane Cowl had previously appeared in the original Broadway production of Easy Virtue, a comedy by Noël Coward. She was not in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1928 silent film version of the play. Another film adaptation of Easy Virtue was released in 2008, directed by Stephan Elliott, with a cast including Kristin Scott Thomas, Colin Firth, and Jessica Biel in the role Cowl had originated 83 years earlier.
