Margaret Tyzack CBE

Actress Margaret Tyzack, CBE has died aged 79. Who could forget her perfect performance as the long-suffering wife of Monty Dartie in the 1960s' TV adaptation of John Galsworthy's The Forsyte Saga; especially the scene in which it emerges that Monty has taken the pearls that he gave her (and for which her father eventually had had to pay) and given them to a South American dancer:

"O! No! Monty, not my pearls!"

Monty runs off with the dancer for a brief spell, before returning, penniless with his cracked shoes, to seek and find forgiveness; thereafter more or less towing the line.
