Noel  Streatfeild

Noel Streatfeild, the plain middle child of two talented and attractive sisters, studied acting at RADA and worked as an actor for nine years before composing Dancing Shoes in 1936, which became an instant blockbuster. Noel touched many sectors of life as a vicarage daughter, factory girl, actress, model, social worker, writer, and fighter for good books. Her life experiences improved her storytelling, which became so popular that she was dubbed a national monument by the time she was eighty. She passed away in 1986.
