About the Narrators

Hume Cronyn (1911–2003) was born in Ontario, and was the son of an Ontario politician. Cronyn made it to Broadway in 1934 in the production Three Men on a Horse. That was his first of several collaborations with director George Abbott. He then went on to make his film debut in Alfred Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt. In 1942 he married actress Jessica Tandy, who he co-starred with in the film The Green Years, among many others.

Jessica Tandy (1909–1994) was a British-born stage and film actress who spent most of her sixty-seven-year career in the United States. She acted in more than 100 stage productions and had more than sixty film and TV roles. She had many roles on Broadway, from 1930 through 1986, and her stage presence continued to grow while enacting a succession of Shakespeare’s premiere ladies, until her stellar performance as Blanche DuBois in Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece A Streetcar Named Desire. She won a total of seven Tony and Drama Desk Awards. Her film career began in 1932, and she had a role in Alfred Hitchcock’s famous The Birds. She is now well known for her late-career film roles in Fried Green Tomatoes and Driving Miss Daisy, for which she won an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role. She was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
